Dove appendi un'allegoria? Cosa (non) era il realismo socialista.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Mikhail Khmelko's two Stalin-prize winning paintings are both patterned on clearly recognizable models, such different as Jacques-Louis David and Ilia Repin. The stylistic coordinates of Socialist Realism, thus, were built on different, often not openly mentioned, ingredients. An analysis of the emerging connections gives the opportunity to discuss the basic assumptions of Socialist Realism as well as the leading critical interpretations.
