A is for Art

So, I discovered this guy on Wikipedia:
Kustodiev_self_portrait.jpg
His name is Boris Kustodiev, he lived in Russia in the early 20th century, and he was a member of the Mir Iskusstva movement.

He likes to use colors:
300px-Kustodiev_Merchants_Wife.jpg

And paint cool people like Chaliapin:
482px-Kustodiyev_Shalyapin.JPG


Maybe I'm just out of it, but I very rarely hear about the Mir Iskusstva people, and they are awesome and should get more appreciation. (It's a weird little time period -- Russia in the teens and twenties -- and it also produced some of my favorite poetry. Beautiful things that never had a chance to last.)

So, what do you folks like in the way of art?

    I like socialist realism, or socrealism, as I learned it. It's a very specific sort of realism that was developed by the government of the USSR in order to promote communism. More than the style of it, I like the history of it though, because the people who practiced it became so disillusioned in the progress of the Soviet Union in its early days that things happened like them writing poetry in their own blood and committing suicide, as in the case of Sergei Yesenin.
