Artist's description:

One of a series of works exploring the theme of the Battle of Stalingrad. Here, the Women munition workers present the Women's Tank Brigade with one of the shells they have produced for the War effort. The rôle of women in the Soviet army and society was crucial to the war effort. The canvas shape is loosely suggestive of a 'pincer movement' by which the Left bank of the Volga was attacked. The colours refer to military camouflage and uniforms. The stippled grey derives from Jacques Louis David's great History painting, specifically the background to "The Death of Marat" in Brussels.

Materials used:

Oil paint and laminated computer print on hardboard
