The artist is Rylov
Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov (Lenin) (April 22, 1870, Simbirsk-January 21, 1924, Horki estate, Moscow province)-Russian and Soviet political and statesman, revolutionary, creator of the Russian Social Democratic Party (Bolsheviks) (B. )), one of the organizers and leaders of the October Revolution of 1917 in Russia, the chairman of the Council of People’s Commissars (Government) of the RSFSR (Russian Soviet Federal Socialist Republic), the creator of the first in world history of the socialist state. Marxist, publicist, founder of Marxism-Leninism, ideologist and creator of the third (communist) international, founder of the USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics).
To embody the theme “Lenin in the spill”, which many artists turned to, Rylov chose a laconic, but full of romantic pathos composition: Lenin is depicted walking along the shore of the Gulf of Finland against the background of a high and alarming sky. This coloristic tension corresponds to the scale of the problems that the leader thought over in suburban solitude: here he completed one of his fundamental works – “state and revolution”, in which he formulated the role of a violent revolution in the “re -education of the masses”, and also posed a concrete question about armed uprising and overthrowing the Provisional Government.
