Gallery: "Manege" Central Exhibition Hall
Location: Russia, Saint-Petersburg
Exhibition featuring two most famous Russian painters ("Socialist realism" style), Aleksandr Deyneka (worked mostly in Moscow) and Alexander Samokhvalov (St. Petersburg).
Quite happy I've visited it! Strange enough, but just recently I wasn't very familiar with Socialist realism style at all, i. e. I knew nothing about Samokhvalov, for example (whom I liked even better than Deyneka, although he is considered as a "default" representative of this style).
