ART Totalitarian (from the Latin. Totim, totalis - all, whole) - one of the types of normative aesthetics, accompanying communist, fascist and otherwise rigidly centralized state structures.
The relationship between social upheaval and 20 in the aesthetic revolution. obvious. The First World War and Russian revolution take place against a background of already an advanced disintegration of European culture.
Russian avant-garde, briefly survived the socialist revolution was undoubtedly one of its enzymes. In turn, the firstborn of the ideological, totalitarian art - Soviet socialist realism was the direct product of this revolution, and his style resembles the art of the first half of the 19., Is a completely new phenomenon.

Andrei Cherkasov: Socialist realism has found admirers in the West.
Major exhibition of works of Soviet socialist realism was opened in London. In the gallery "Chambers" features some 200 works created in different years and in various techniques. As found NTV correspondent Andrei Cherkasov, while rich Russians are spending hundreds of millions in the western auctions, foreigners are buying paintings of Soviet artists.
We saw each other almost every day: at school, on the road to the plant in the "red corner" of the factory or military unit. We did not know that contemporary art can be different. But when everything changed, nobody even asked, but what happened to all those familiar images are not so distant past.
Cast Away in the West, too politicized and boring Soviet Socialist Realism did not find loyal fans at home. Upsurge of interest from the beginning of perestroika - foreign tourist in a fur hat with a badge or a Soviet poster above the desk, but then again calm.
15 years after the fall of the Iron Curtain aesthetic fascination with the world's first Soviet state is experiencing a rebirth. Sell the work of artists-socialist realists in the West Tamara Demidenko began back in 1992. Then cloth or going to landfill, or they gathered dust in the workshops of the authors.
Tamara Demidenko, entrepreneur: "At the time, nobody paid any attention to these works, because no one liked. Then they seemed to have disappeared. It turns out that they evacuated foreigners - Americans, Frenchmen, Italians. They do not sell the picture, just keep them at home. I know many were brought here pasta machines, and took them back this work.
Machine now, of course, does not carry, but on the British art market in the Soviet painting demand. Some are buying, because the exotic, others - because it is fashionable. Soviet symbols the size of a half to three meters in the living room. Still others see in these works hand master. Increasingly, foreigners pay attention to technique.
Christine Lidney, art critic: "I am absolutely confident that in 30-40 years old Russian, who currently do not like painting of this kind, are aware that during the Soviet period, there were many good artists. Now do you evaluate this work in terms of policy, not from the standpoint of artistic craftsmanship ".
His first portrait of Nikita Khrushchev Oliver Olsten bought back in the 60-m. Passion Soviet art - interest from childhood. He has always been curious that there, behind the Iron Curtain. He calls himself a "fist" and did not hesitate. Collecting Soviet pastoral painting and for some reason the portraits of Stalin.
Oliver Alston, a collector: "I would have never hung a portrait of Hitler in their homes - even imagine such can not. But Stalin probably killed more lives than Hitler. I often ask myself, why can collect Stalin and Hitler could not. I do not know. Probably because we were allies in the war. "
"Dancing Cossacks", "Soldiers", "Treatment of anti-fascists" - many of the paintings have already found a buyer. Fabrics "26 Baku commissars" and "Bloody Morning" for obvious historical reasons for British interest buyers do not enjoy.
The current exhibition of Soviet socialist realism - the second time in the last couple of years, and I must say that most of these art works are sold "to cheers. At that time, the rich Russian spending hundreds of millions of dollars at auction at Christie »(Christie's) and Sotheby's» (Sotheby's), buying up the masters of the XIX century, foreigners snapping up art, which in our country today is not in vogue. Such a cycle of paintings now in nature.
Russian Art Gallery: auction for contemporaries and posterity.
..... All the evidence indicates that the time of the denial of the Soviet art of the "golden age" of socialism (1950-1960-x) is slowly disappearing. Replaced by a recognition that this era, like the Soviet period as a whole, gave the country and the world of the great masters and great works. It has become quite obvious that in this era created a very original painting. According to the press release the organizers, "Western art of socialist realism appreciated several decades ago. He grew up interest in her and in Russia. Among the amateurs and connoisseurs of art, including among the far-sighted businessmen, came an increased interest in the works of the Soviet era. More expensive products officially recognized masters of this period exceeds even the traditional rise in prices for works by masters-academics and the avant-garde end of XIX - early XX centuries.. " As can be seen, collecting Soviet painting becomes profitable financial investment and fashionable intellectual pursuits.
In the West, the price of a realistic painting of the Soviet era is several times higher. For example, in Russia, a genre picture of the legendary Tkachev brothers (their "Chiquititas" was stamped in all school textbooks "Native question" since the Soviet Union) can be purchased for $ 40 000-100 000, and in any gallery of the U.S. or the UK has already offered a $ 80 000 -- 300 000 ...." http://www.art-auction.ru/press_d.php?id=7

You are seriously mistaken, I think all the U.S. along with Britain does not reach, and a dozen galleries, in which Socialist Realism submitted at least one image. There are two or three figures, which are restructuring grabbed for a song of this genre, and now trying to sell them for at least some money. Foreigners have grown and been educated in very different cultural values, socialist realism in them is less interest than the art of Burma, where at least some exotic ...

I think that socialist realism-as-a misnomer, as \ person of Caucasian nationality. \ Is art of the Soviet period. it ikusstvo gave the world a lot of names in different areas, and fine art here is no exception, and even remind the world their individuality, just not enough time has passed. The fact that in the west of them small, then it is not so, there is enough, just before it is not very, tk-place is money, and pay the money Gagosian, so there is a shark in formaldehyde. Soviet art there is no place. And the names of those not represented. There will be more new names.

I agree with you - the term is incorrect. Socialist realism in the literal sense - a "fire banners exploding upwards, cheerful Pioneers \ pensioners, milkmaids \ farmers, serious war \ scientists, portraits of leaders, utopian views of cities, the battle for" world peace ", etc. And at the same time and at the same artists who are all writing is amazing and beautiful pictures of landscapes, still lifes, genre paintings. Of course this all must share - conjuncture, "One Day" and the arts. But the authors are the same ... And because one size fits all - "Socialist Realism". I personally House portrait of Khrushchev Nalbandian did not hang, and hang its beautiful landscape. That such non-political Socialist Realism, like many, including and the West.
