Tretyakov Gallery

Vera Mukhina is most famous for her work on the monumental ‘Worker and Collective Farm Girl’ sculpture, which became the logo for Mosfilm and featured in the opening ceremony at the Sochi Olympics. But in a display to mark the 125th anniversary of her birth, the Tretyakov Gallery is focusing on less well-known works from the early years of the USSR.

It was a time when art was being put to the service of the ideals of the new socialist order, and when the heroes of sculpture and painting should be idealized images of everyday people rather than images of ‘great men’. Looking at the sketches and projects Mukhina planned at this time gives an insight into how she developed her monumentalist style and helped bring these ideals to reality in bronze and stone.
