Soviet artist Gennady Sidorovich Mosin
In the painting “Nineteen eighteenth” (1963-1965), the artist managed to create a vivid and effective image of a revolutionary impulse and an entourage. Here everything is filled with high pathetic: the severity and passion of people, piercing contrast of colors, hard, steel rhythm of lines. The concentrated minds generalize the thoughts and feelings of the revolutionary masses. The whole energy of the picture concentrated in the figure of Lenin, the orator, who addresses the crowd with an ardent appeal.
Born January 26, 1930, in the village of Kvmenno-Oesrsky of Sverdlovsk region, Mosin always felt himself cultivated by the Urals, its nature and its cultural and historical environment. He inherited from his ancestors, indigenous Uralians, a sense of devotion and love for everything that gave him life and talent.
