Alexander Gerasimov, "Herd on the Collective Farm/Stalin and Voroshilov at the Kremlin", 1958-1959




Estimate £80,000-120,000
- A version of Gerasimov’s iconic composition from 1938 depicting Stalin and Voroshilov
- was recently discovered under this scene of peasants and livestock painted in the late 1950s.
- Following the death of Stalin and Khruschev’s Secret Speech in 1956
- portraits of the former leader were no longer in demand and
- ‘Stalin’s Velasquez’ had to recycle a previous composition to keep up with the changing ideology
