Drummer (builder of socialism)

The artist is Voltaire

The artist is not so much striving to capture in the portrait the features of the appearance and character of a particular person, as it synthesizes on the canvas an impeccable example of a new Soviet person. Labor acquiring the significance of heroic feat in the USSR is shown here primarily as a state of continuous readiness for the assault on new production tasks, clearly expressed by the pose and expression of the young man’s face. An adequate background of a monumental figure is the industrial landscape shown from a bird’s flight, talking about the gigantic scale of socialist construction, in which the characterized character takes part.
