The artist is self -wrapping
In Soviet fine art and cinema, in the campaign and mass culture, it was women who became the bearers of the images of “new people”. Drawing them, Alexander Samokhvalov invariably emphasized their difference from women of the former eras, whose life was built around her husband, houses and children. New women – strong, socially active, liberated, self -sufficient – do not turn from Samokhvalov into an extremely propaganda symbol. In their images, his personal sympathies happily connected with ideological attitudes.
