About work: The work is based on a real-life episode: during his last years, Lenin, gravely ill, stayed in a small village of Gorki with his wife Nadezhda Krupskaya. There, they indeed watched the just-released movie “The Red Devils” in a company of local youngsters and peasants. In this work, the artist tried to have his own take on a popular topic of “Lenin and children”. Signed and dated in the lower right-hand corner.
