  • Amazing Soviet War Paintings

    I've seen Soviet war art, certainly the propaganda posters, but only a few of the type shown here...fantastic.

      I'd love to get a print of the Nurse Natasha painting by "N. But." I don't suppose anybody knows the full artist name or where prints can be had?

          Outstanding site

          Awesome paintings that really tell the story of the war in the east.

          "Shotdown " is an interesting one.


          Thanks for the info.

              Yeah, that one stuck out for me too and not because the pilot is portrayed so close to the ground. It's the steel girders sticking out of the ground that grabbed my eye. The detail and rendering of the corroded steel is a stark contrast to the rather cartoon-like portrayal of the smoke from the crashing plane.
              I'm thinking that these works were 'approved' as politically 'sound' at the time of their execution which makes them propaganda is well as the more usual, printed types we're more used to. I've seen a few of these before.
              Notice that there are two images entitled 'Native Land' and in both, the main figure is shown gripping the soil...one in death and one alive.
              Awesome stuff, now in my favourites. Thanks joea.
              Peace.

                You need to go to Stalingrad and Moscow and see the wall murals at the big museums there if you want to see impressive paintings, especially stalingrad and the panorama.

                    "Man is the only animal that deals in that atrocity of atrocities, War. He is the only one that gathers his brethren about him and goes forth in cold blood and calm pulse to exterminate his kind. He is the only animal that for sordid wages will march out... and help to slaughter strangers of his own species who have done him no harm and with whom he has no quarrel.... And in the intervals between campaigns he washes the blood off his hands and works for "the universal brotherhood of man" - with his mouth". Mark Twain

                          Pictures of the surprise attack of Soviet tanks on Tatsinskaya airfield during Operation Uranus. I took this pictire in the Battle of Stalingrad Panorama Museum - and its just one of several large panoramas they have there, not counting the grand diorama of the capture of Mamaev Hill on January 26, 1943.

                          Some other diorama pictures. I was in a hurry to see the Mamayev Hill as I only had a few hours in the city, so I didn't write down dioramas' names. I guess some of the forum's members may be able to identify them.
