The Museum of Russian Art (TMORA) invites you for an exclusive virtual look at our main exhibition “Leaders and the Masses: Mega Paintings from Soviet Ukraine” with Chief Curator, Dr. Masha Zavialova. The exhibition features thirty-seven Soviet-era paintings, highlighting a remarkable recent donation to the museum from the Jurii Maniichuk and Rose Brady Collection. These historical works include some of the largest Soviet-era canvases in existence. Larger-than-life portrayals of Soviet leaders feature Lenin, Stalin, and Khrushchev, alongside collective farmers, soldiers, sailors, road construction workers, fishermen, and more. Many of the paintings in the exhibition have never been shown before in the United States.
