The Body in Soviet Art
A Guy from the Urals (1959) Vasily A.Neyasov (1926 – 1984)

The Body in Soviet Art examines the depictions of the human form in Soviet art, featuring more than fifty works created in the 1950s-1970s.  Representations of the human body have varied over time and across cultures.  Soviet art placed a unique emphasis on the working body as part of a Soviet collective.

Drawing and painting the human form was the benchmark of  professional art education during the Soviet era. One of the exhibition’s sections will include a selection of works drawn from observation of a live  model unclothed for classical figure studies.
