Stalingrad No.6

Created by, Clive Walley

During lockdown I had the opportunity to read Vasily Grossman's very long accounts of the siege of Stalingrad in the second world war.

I made six small paintings as a result. They all attempt to image the terrifying ordeal of the Russian defenders who lived and died in filthy rat-hole dugouts while the city above was bombed to rubble. I claim no powers of clairvoyance but the pictures have an unnerving relevance to today.

Medium: Bitumen on board
