The original in 1950 is by Vladimir A. Serov (1910-1968)

The original ( 1950 ) is displayed in The Tretyakov Art
Museum in Moscow by V.A. SEROV ( 1910 - 1968 )
Vladimir Aleksandrovich Serov was a pupil of Isaak Izrailevich Brodsky ( 1884 - 1939 ) -
who worked under Ilya Repin. Serov was at the Academy of Arts from 1927 - 1934
where he learned a flashy, poster like style of painting. Serov painted numerous historical
pictures showing revolutionary and Communist Party leaders, of which a typical example
is 'The Delegates From The Villages Visiting Lenin' in 1950. Also crude icons of Lenin
harangueing the masses , usually painted in atrociously glaring colours. These works ,
widely reproduced, resulted in his being recognized as a leader of Socialist Realist art
without in any way adding to its prestige. They actually contributed to his downfall after
the death of Stalin, when he was accused of having been one of the artists principally
involved in the 'personality cult'. Thus had the revolutioary ideals of the AKhRR
( Association of Artists of Revolutioary Russia ) declined into mere time-serving.
Serov was president of The Academy of Fine Arts ( around 1962 )
( Note: Not to be confused with the more famous Valentin Aleksandrovich Serov 1865-1911)
