Vadym Meller - 1920 Costume Sketch

Employing an avant-garde style in this 1920 costume sketch, Vadym Meller (like Ukrainian artists of the time) participated in the “Ukrainization” of the country.

Lenin allowed such artistic expression, but Stalin wanted Ukrainian artists, like artists throughout the Soviet Union, to employ “Socialist Realism” in their work.

Meller’s sketch, depicted here, measures 19 x 9 inches (49.5 x 23.5 cm) and consists of gouache on paper.

The image is online via the Ukrainian Museum in New York City.
