  Amazon.de: Art Since 1940: Strategies of Being: English Books: Jonathan Fineberg   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
For Fineberg, the story of art since 1940 is the story of exceptional individuals profoundly engaged in interpreting existence.
Art is a "mode of thought," the result of creative personalities formulating visual metaphors.
Fineberg (art history, Univ. of Illinois) asserts that the "implicit underlying subject matter of modern art is always the personality of the artist in its encounter with the world." Such explicit, forceful expressions seldom find their way into major survey texts, which more often try to balance points of view and hedge bets.

 Valentin Gorchakov - Russian Realistic Art 1940 - 1980
The late 1950s and early 1960s were among the most romantic periods in Soviet art and the artists retained that romantic interpretation of life in their creative works.
Gorchakov, along with other artists enriched the Russian realistic school not only through the use of impressionistic art language of the 1950s, but also through adherence to postimpressionistic influences which Soviet artists had ignored since the 1930s.
The artistic methods used by painters of this period were close to those of postimpressionists; however, the atmosphere that inspired their work was entirely different.

In the first half of the twentieth century, both czarist Russia and its successor, the Soviet Union, were confronted with the problem of conducting military operations involving mass armies along broad fronts, a characteristic of modern war.
From the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905, through World War I, the civil war, and to the eve of World War II, modern operational art grew from theoretical speculations by a small group of officers to become a critical component of the Soviet art of war.
From as early as the Russo-Japanese war the Russians were already experimenting with 'front' type formations and groupings of armies, this later led to those of the first world war, civil war, and finally in the beginning of the second world war.
