Images of Lenin #56

October 1917, Vladimir Favorsky, engraving on wood, USSR 1928 -- Images of Lenin #56

Vladimir Favorsky (1886-1964) was famed for his woodcuts and book illustrations. He also worked in other mediums. Favorsky was named a People’s Artist of the USSR (1963) and won the Lenin Prize in 1962.

This is the fifty-sixth in our 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.
