Deyneka’s work goes well beyond propaganda. Check out this 1943 painting of a shot-down German pilot. It’s not the sympathetic depiction of a Nazi you’d expect from a Stalin-era artist during wartime. And he was punished for his humanist stance. Interesting guy. https://c8.alamy.com/comp/RJH50C/the-knocked-down-german-air-ace-1943-by-alexander-deyneka-18991969-soviet-russian-socialist-realist-painter-graphic-artist-sculptor-RJH50C.jpg

Wow. And just think, 50 years later we are finally approaching the edge of space with the help of Bezos et al. Thank god for billionaires. Who knows, if we give them enough tax dollars maybe they could send an animal into space in the next 50 years, truly inspIrational and groundbreaking scientific breakthroughs worthy of our resources Edit: I’m getting messages claiming humans landed on the moon in 1969. Yea, sure bud. If that was true why would be getting hype about approaching space in 2021, huh smarty pants?
