Lenin's Fist [our title] was painted by Russian artist Eduard Sergeevich Revenko (1937-1993) and Ukrainian artist Leonida Steblovskaya Petrovna (1935-). Both of them graduated from Kiev Art Institute in 1962. (Oil on canvas, 180 x 180 cm, 1969-1970). This painting with Lenin's hand resting against the red table, according to Visser could be interpreted that the artist wanted to show that Lenin's hands were bloody and that he was guilty.
