V.I. Lenin: The Leader of the Proletariat -- P. Shillingovsky (1881-1942), etching USSR 1928


Shillingovsky was one of the foremost etching, engraving and woodcutting artists of the early USSR. He, sadly, died during the siege of Leningrad in World War II.


The Left Chapter is thrilled to announce the launch of a new feature that will daily 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.
