The Hand of Lenin, 1967

Images of Lenin #71

The Hand of Lenin, poster, Anton Refregier, USA 1967 -- Images of Lenin #71


Anton Refregier was an American artist, peace activist and supporter of the Soviet Union. He travelled to the USSR several times and produced a book of sketches about Soviet life in the 1970s. He died while painting a mural in Moscow in 1979.


This is the seventy-first 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.


The first of these is: Lenin centennial posters from around the world, 1970 (theleftchapter.com)
