Sergei Merkurov is known in the history of Soviet sculpture as the unrivaled master of Lenin’s image. He was one of the first monument sculptors to regularly receive state commissions for statues of Lenin and Stalin, many of which have not survived. He was responsible for a huge number of these monuments. Art experts of the time noted with veneration the “Assyro-Babylonian” power of his monuments.
