The artist is self -wrapping
After the murder of Kirov (1934), many portraits and works on the topic of his real or mythical biography appear in painting and sculpture. Samokhvalov writes a portrait of Kirov, the painting “Kirov at a construction site” and, finally, the first “big” picture in his work, “with. M. Kirov takes a parade of physical education facilities “. The artist had long dreamed and reflected on a multi -figure monumental picture, about its fresco solution. The picture takes place on the Palace Square of Leningrad. Its space closes the facade of the building of the main headquarters with a huge portrait of Lenin. The views of physical education are directed to the tribune, to joyfully welcoming them with. M. Kirov and other members of the Leningrad government, to which a group of girls in a rapid movement brings flowers.
