The Return of the Prodigal Son

Ilya Glazunov

1977

The message of this painting is simple in the extreme. Russia shall only recover itself by returning to its Christian heritage. Reflect well on the date of composition… 1977… nearly 15 years before the fall of the Soviet Union, a time when many thought that the Soviet system was entrenched and permanent.
