Creativity and death, pictures and war, talent and Nazism - these notions contradict each other.
The new exhibition in the Victory Museum, Moscow, features the works by front-line artists. The authors of the presented exhibits served in different troops, had awards and titles.
Battlefield sketches are permeated with fear and pain, longing and sorrow. These portraits bring home to people the cost of that victory, how people endured all the hardships and trials and managed to maintain patriotism and humanity.
The exhibition includes about 30 artworks. Few of the heroes depicted in them survived the frontline. This exhibition was the result of the work by volunteers of the Search Movement of Russia. It took two years to track the destiny of the soldiers depicted in the pictures.
