MoodBoard – Discipline

A few months ago, during one of my usual iconographic researches, I discovered the artwork Gymnasts of the USSR (1964-65) by Dmitri Dmitrievich Zhilinskyj, a Russian painter who  joined the Soviet art movement called ‘Severe Style‘.

This movement was born in the mid ’60s, when the communist utopianism began to decline, and it was mainly featured by the change of the dictates of the Socialist Realism (the only style allowed by the regime), highlighting the suffering of the heroic figures and replacing the glory of the collective work with the introspection of the individual characters.
