"Stalin with the Sturgeon" - William C. Reed, 2015, Acrylic on Canvas, 36x36 inches
Part of my series of paintings: "Famous Faces in Unfamiliar Places, With Fish"
This one was fun and fast to paint. Like every painting in this series you will find that I selected a famous (or infamous) person and presented them in an an atypical way. Stalin is seen in his under-shorts with his uniform jacket partially open as he kneels on a beach with a large sturgeon cradled in his arms.
