Fedor Shapaev

 Country Doctor (1967)

 Not Far From the Motherland (1955)

Young Pioneer at the Door

The Collective Farm Electrician (ca. 1960)

I'm struck by the similarity of Shapaev's painting (above) and Norman Rockwell's treatment of the same subject (below). Yes, Shapaev's painting plays up the drama of the situation a little more, but still they're very similar. Both paintings are celebrations of progress and ordinary working people.
