LENIN NO. 5
This is an oil painting on the found soviet-era portrait of Lenin. The canvas is a little damaged. By default, this painting arrives NOT STRETCHED rolled in a protected tube. For overseas shipment, canvas paintings are carefully removed from the wooden stretcher bars and shipped rolled to reduce shipping costs. If you prefer to have the painting shipped remaining stretched on the wooden frame (ready-to-hang), additional costs will apply. If you want to inquire about this option please contact me before your purchase. In 2015 the Ukrainian government banned all symbols and images associated with the USSR. But numerous oil portraits, sculptures, monuments and other images of Lenin began to be removed from public places decades before the "decommunization laws". What happened to the hundreds of thousands portraits of former Soviet leader? Many of them are already destroyed. Some of them had been left in attics or basements. Oleksandr is looking for all these forgotten things and giving them a new life and a new artistic content.
