The artist is Malagis
The picture belongs to a series of portraits of collective farmers performed by Malagis in the early 1930s. Similar series are characteristic of time when the practice of creative business trips to the areas of industrial and collective farm construction is widespread. The artist creates a gallery not so much as types. These are simple good people, confident in the importance of their work, openly and optimistically looking into the future. The artist achieves this effect, taking the figures close -up, mainly frontal, extremely bringing them closer to the viewer.
