The Renaissance Society is the final stop for this travelling exhibition organized by Kunsthalle Zurich. Twenty-one large-scale paintings by one of the U.S.S.R.'s first generation of painters to create "unofficial" works of art. Bulatov's paintings--lush, poetic realism overlaid with wry, existential words and phrases--symbolize the Soviet citizenry's continuing romance with their people and their country, balanced against a growing disdain for their government.
