Exhibition of the Month: Viktor Popkov: Genius of the Russian Soul

Soviet Rockwell

Exhibition of the Month: Viktor Popkov: Genius of the Russian Soul.

You know, these images really struck me and I just had to reblog this. There’s a homespun beauty to these paintings that remind me of Norman Rockwell with a touch of Thomas Hart Benton – Soviet style, of course. Hope you enjoy.

  2. Thanks as always for the repost! Here’s an interesting article from a few years back about the similarity between Norman Rockwell and Soviet Socialist Realism. Weirdly enough I was just writing about it when I paused to read your post.
