The Daughter of Soviet Kyrgyzia

Semyon Chuikov- The Daughter of Soviet Kyrgyzia

The Daughter of Soviet Kyrgyzia stands tall and confidently walks towards her future. Similar to other Socialist Realist paintings, she towers above a low horizon line giving her an aura of monumentality. Her gaze toward the path in front of her practically negates the viewer’s presence further adding to her stature. The books she carries, presumably to school or lessons, are an emblem of the education she is able to receive on account of Soviet leadership. Chuikov does not aspire to paint with precise realism, but just as with other Socialist Realist paintings the content of the image outshines such critiques.
