    Just had a look at some of his other stuff, it would drive me mad as I'd want to touch it.

    One of them was Ukrainian. And revisionism? That shit wasn't until after 1953.

    You can clearly see them plotting the back-stab if you look closely at the pixels.

    I have a non-kitsch interest in Commie art, and talking of Chinese stuff I was tempted to buy this recently.

    It's an original poster for Red Detachment of Women by Jin Meisheng, a Shanghai-based artist working in advertising before 1949. It's from 1964, but advertising the 1961 film by Jin Xie (the above resembles a scene from that film, with Zhu Xijuan holding the rifle and wearing the grass camouflage cape), not a poster for the ballet when it premiered in the same year, and later filmed during the Cultural Revolution.

    Not seen that film. You can see the link with the pre-49 Shanghai art style, though saying that wonder if I'd have spotted it had you not said.

    Stubb's Whistlejacket in the National Gallery - I love this painting and whenever I'm near I pop in to look at it.

    Its in a perfect position in the Gallery, you see it from a distance, framed by several doors, its breathtaking.

    Salvador Dali - Reflections of Elephants. I had it on the wall of my student room. It's not an amazing painting, but it seems it when you're off your box on magic mushrooms. :D Happy memories.

    John Atkinson Grimshaw. He painted some sentimental nonsense, but his town scenes - this one painted in Hull in 1881 - are wonderfully atmospheric.

    He was one of the original Vorticists, too. Did a fantastic portrait of 3 Tommies behind the front lines, too.
