* Aleksandr Laktionov (16 May 1910 - 15 March 1972) was a Socialist realism painter in the post-war Soviet Union. Laktionov’s breakthrough work was "A Letter From the Front", which captured the prevailing mood among the people of the Soviet Union following the German-Soviet War. It is a highly optimistic work, bathed in a warm glow, and is characteristic of the conflictlessness, which became a motif of Laktionov’s later works and Socialist Realism in general.- Wikipedia.

* Aleksandr Laktionovi "Kiri rindelt" kujutab aega Suure Isamaasõja lõpul, mil Nõukogude sõdurite kirjad rindelt juba rõõmustavateks muutusid. Seda koduste rõõmu Laktionov näitaski.

* Александр Лактионов (1910-1972) - русский советский живописец и график. Народный художник РСФСР (1969). Академик АХ СССР (1958).
