Working on sketches for paintings for the People’s Commissariat of Agriculture building, Deineka travelled many times to villages and communal farms outside of Moscow, where he gathered material for his images. He chose to use a restrained aesthetic range, springing from the rich tradition of fresco painting that Deineka admired. In this case, the artist captured a brigade of collective farm workers listening, apparently, to their chairman.
