At the beginning of the 1930s, Osolodkov painted a few works on the theme of “Foundrymen”, as well as some figures of individual workers. In this painting the artist concentrates on the sanctity of the labour process, the ritualistic invocation of fire, and light effects. Judging from the guidelines drawn across it, it was ultimately intended for a wall, which fit the requirements of the times but was not actually executed by many.
