Soviet artists painting war 1941-1945
Early in morning of 22 June 1941 the Soviet people were shocked by the message of the treacherous attack of the fascist hordes on the USSR. On the second day of the war in the streets of Moscow appeared a poster by Kukryniksy “Mercilessly crush and destroy the enemy!”. Immediately after the war, the Soviet artists, together with all the people were ready to defend our homeland. Artists worked in different directions: they produced political posters, inspiring the Soviet people to the act of bravery.
