The Socialist Realism type of art was intended to appeal to the working class of the Soviet Union. It probably did. It was a reaction to the elitist art aimed at the privileged that had dominated art pretty much forever.Personally, I find it appealing as a working class guy. I think it is interesting that the Republican party is adopting images appealing to working class people --- probably reflecting the increasing influence of working class and lower middle class in the Republican party.Of course I wouldn't expect to see such displays by Democrats who are resolutely sticking with the fashions and ideas of upper middle class and wealthy educated elites and the affectations and fashions of the intellectual class.
