/\ Awesome post btw
I've been interested in Socialist Realism recently as an artistic movement. I might make a more detailed post in the art thread but this particular piece depicts a historical event we don't have any pictures of.
This is Vladimir Pchelin's depiction of Fanny Kaplan's assasination attempt on Lenin on August 30th, 1918.
She was driven to try to kill Lenin after the Bolsheviks dissolved the Constituent Assembly and banned the Socialist Revolutionary party (SR). The Bolsheviks had 24% of the vote and SR 40.4%. Kaplan's actions were one of many that would sadly fail to defeat the authoritarianism taking hold of the revolution. She fired 3 shots, 2 of them landed and none of them worked.
