This portrait was signed off for printing on the 3rd. of April 1953 in a run of 250,000 copies at the ‘Pravda’ publishing house.

Stalin had died on the 5th. March, so this was a commemorative picture.   Very few propaganda pictures of Stalin were published subsequently.  It is printed on art-quality paper but does show some wear.

Stalin is shown wearing his Marshal of the Soviet Union uniform with a single Hero of the USSR medal.

On the back of the picture is a ticket from the Ivanovskaya ‘Artist’ Collective showing the price as 35 Roubles and slightly exaggerating the size of the piece.
