Like many of his colleagues, Vyacheslav Pakulin addressed the industrial theme in the early 1930s. The artist was interested in his human heroes and the possibility of a painterly interpretation of an industrial subject. Pakulin "revolves" the space of the shop floor, filling it with the rhythmic movements of the workers. The unceasing motion evokes the sensation of the constancy and stability of the efforts of labour. The artist s soft silhouettes and light, subtly degraded painting add a poetic touch. On the reverse side of the canvas, the artist noted the exact dates of work on the painting: December 1931 - February 1932.
