Lenin on the Moon

Vyacheslav Khovayev, a Soviet artist from the Ukrainian city of Dneprpetrovsk, was known mainly as a landscape artist. He studied under Isaac Brodsky in Leningrad. Apparently his cosmonautic paintings were generally unknown (kept in special reserves and unexhibited) until a fairly recent exhibition at the HIstorical Museum. The painting is said to be have been composed around 1960.
