I actually have a copy of Surikov's A Young Woman at Prayer on my wall at home, although I am thinking of replacing it with a Kandinsky, possibly Composition VII.

I find her attractive.

I find the women painted by Francesco also fascinating.

He has a particular way of capturing both feminine resilience and determination in a single instance. His Meditation is probably the best example: a bruised, battered Italia, breast exposed, cross fervently clutched...and yet there is something in her eyes, in her glare, that says "Don't count me out just yet!".

I must admit that I am a fan of socialist realism paintings because of its propagandising and political nature.

In Summer at reading, by Nikolai Pozdneev (1959)

Malaya Sadovaya street, by Alexander Semionov (1979)

I particularly like this painting because it managed to evade detection by Stalinist censorship and portray the reality of the Great Purges.

Ivan Kramskoi: Christ in the Desert


:up:

Thanks for sharing that one, I'm not really familiar with Kramskoi at all.

Religious Procession in Kursk Province


That's my favorite Repin. I think it shows an element of pre-Revolutionary Russian society that no history textbook could really convey.

I like this one, it reminded me of a rainy day I spent in Moscow looking for the Tretyakov gallery. I know the picture is of Petersburg but still...

Leonid Afremov - Reflection of the Night. And I don't care, if you haven't heard of him, because I haven't either. I just saw this on site and I liked what I saw.


I was just browsing this thread again and saw this picture: I was blown away, I can't believe I didn't notice it earlier!
