Allan Gamborg, Digital Soviet Art is inviting all of our members to the exhibition - New Year and Winter Holidays. 


Christmas and New Year are often associated with childhood. We all have memories of those days, and the winter holidays connected to it. Christmas trees, presents, Santa Claus. Happy times with days full of winter fun:  Skating, skiing, sledge riding, building snow castles and snow men, snowball fights. Winter holidays are for spending with family and friends. The works date from the 1930s to the 1980s, and may be characterized as socialist realism to a certain degree. The drawings, paintings, posters, post cards and book illustrations, as well as the porcelain figures document an era long gone, a time before computers, a time with simple and unpretentious children’s games. Boys played ice hockey in the back yard, girls were busy with figure skating – and both boys and girl went on the sledge downhill. The hockey players, the figure skaters, the cross country and downhill skiers, the ski jumpers – they all come alive in this catalogue. 

New Year and winter holidays always was a happy time for each generation of Soviet children. The way it was may be seen at the exhibition.

The exhibition will be open until February 7 (closed on Mondays and Tuesdays). www.aaii.ru
