I don't share the author's discreet enthusiasm for the Kolkhoz pastorales of Arkadi Plastov, and I wish that he'd told us more about the weirdly expressionist Vasili Svarog, but it is satisfying to learn that two other SR mannerists, Aleksandr Deineka and Yuri Pimenov, had both been "formalist realists" in the 1920s - inspired by machines, mass-production, and industrial architecture to develop an aesthetic language of simplified geometric forms in a stylized fiat space.
