The exhibition of works by Isaak Brodsky displays quite a vast array of the artist’s oeuvre: from his very early works up to his renowned masterpieces in Soviet realism style.
Already the early art pieces by Isaak Brodsky, which are rarely exhibited, carry a sign of a significant artistic talent. The majority of works shown at the exhibition are portraits of the artist’s relatives and close friends. Among them there are portraits of his sister, P.I. Brodskaya (1906), of his wife, T.P. Myasoedova-Brodskaya (1922), and of one of his relatives, O. P. Myasoedova (1921).
The Great October Revolution became another subject for many artists to ponder upon: Soviet painters depicted historical events as well as various labor achievements by the people. The brightest example of Isaak Brodsky’s paintings concerning the subject could be the painting “Strike Worker of Dneprostroi” (1932). During this time the artist also worked on portraits of the most influential Soviet politicians, such as: V.I.Lenin, I.V.Stalin, M.S.Voroshilov, etc.
However, not only was Isaak Brodsky the voice of the new Soviet epoch, but also the master of landscapes. Paintings, such as the “Moonlight Night” (1928), “Pskov” (1913), and others reveal the artist’s tender attitude towards nature.
