V. I. Lenin sketch, Nathan Altman, 1920 -- Images of Lenin #68

Nathan Altman (b. 1889) was a prominent Soviet artist best know for his work in the 1920s. Later in his career he worked in theatre and as a book illustrator. He died in Leningrad in 1970.


This is the sixty-eighth 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.

This historic sketch is available as a poster at our Etsy store:
