After the October 1917 revolution, art exhibitions continued at first as before, but the usual stuffing seemed to have been knocked out of them. The theory of art among the supporters of figurative painting rested firmly on the notion of the „organizing” role of recognisable visual images. The Bolsheviks together with the Futurists seem to have attached considerable importance to ‘the image of the people’, but the Party’s in particular. Most aesthetic manifestos were voices representing a unique political view precisely with a unique artistic code. The „left wing”and „right wing” in U.S.S.R. between 1917 and 1919 shifted the art of this period into ceaseless controversy and turmoil both for the creators and observers.
