Leonid Mikhailovich Steele (b. 1921)

Born in 1921, Leonid Mikhailovich Steele is a noted painter of Russian Realist School of the Soviet Period known as "socialist realism."  Member of the Artist Union of USSR since 1958, he is known for his large multi-figure works, genre and landscape.

He graduated from Leningrad Repin Art Institute and participated in over 80 exhibitions including 11 All-Union Exhibitions, the most prestigious of all in the USSR.

 He was widely represented in the mass media of the period, celebrated for his humanistic portrayal of peasant characters and lyrical approach to nature.

 Once establishing his reputation in painterly "impressionist" style he became one of the early pioneers of what later became known as a "severe style."

 His best known multi-figure works are Komsomoltsy, The Land, The Family/ Cossacks Kind Will Never Die/, Mothers of the World, Remembrance.

 He is the father of painter Alexey Steele (b.1967)
