Lenin and Gorky, Petrograd 1920

Images of Lenin #14

Lenin and Maxim Gorky with a group of delegates to the 2nd Congress of the Comintern, July 19, 1920, Petrograd -- Images of Lenin #14

"The characteristic feature of imperialism consists in the whole world, as we now see, being divided into a large number of oppressed nations and an insignificant number of oppressor nations, the latter possessing colossal wealth and powerful armed forces." Lenin, from his Report On The International Situation And The Fundamental Tasks Of The Communist International, July 19 1920

This is the fourteenth in our new daily feature that will be looking at over 75 international Lenin photographs, sketches, sculptures, artworks and photographs from a Soviet archive of the early 1970s. Many of these are quite scarce and uncommon now and many are truly amazing works and pieces.

These are divided into art, Lenin centennial posters from 1970 and Lenin photographs.

We will share them with history and quotes where appropriate.

They will eventually all also be shared in three posts related to the major themes.
