A Kolkhoz brigade taking a break, USSR, 1931. Artist: Anon

A kolkhoz brigade taking a break, USSR, 1931. A kolkhoz was a form of collective farm introduced under the policy of collectivization of agriculture in the Soviet Union in the 1920s and 1930s. The workforce was organised into units known as brigades. The collectivization programme led to a fall in production and severe famines (exacerbated by droughts) between 1929 and 1932. As many as 12 million peasants lost their lives during the period. Found in the collection of the State Central Museum of Contemporary History of Russia, Moscow.

The signing ceremony of the Belgrade Declaration, Belgrade, Yugoslavia, 2 July 1955. Artist: Anon

The signing ceremony of the Belgrade Declaration, Belgrade, Yugoslavia, 2 July 1955. The signing of the Declaration by Yugoslav President Josip Broz Tito (1892-1980) and Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev (1894-1971) brought about a reconciliation between the two communist states after the rift caused by the Tito-Stalin split of 1948. Relations between the two countries would deteriorate again the following year after the Hungarian Uprising. Tito is on the far left of the photograph, with Soviet Premier Nikolai Bulganin (1895-1975) next to him. Khrushchev is second from the right.

Alexander Siloti, Russian pianist and conductor, and Peter Tchaikovsky, Russian composer, 1888. Artist: Unknown

Alexander Siloti, Russian pianist and conductor, and Peter Tchaikovsky, Russian composer, 1888. Tchaikovsky (1840-1893) wrote music across a broad range of genres. Amongst his best known and most popular works are the ballets 'Swan Lake', 'The Sleeping Beauty' and 'The Nutcracker', the '1812 Overture', his First Piano Concerto, his last three numbered symphonies, and the opera 'Eugene Onegin'. Siloti (1863-1945) was the first cousin of Sergei Rachmaninoff. He studied piano under Tchaikovsky at the Moscow Conservatory, graduating with the Gold Medal in 1881. He later worked as editor for Tchaikovsky. Prior to the 1917 Revolution he was one of Russia's foremost artists, but in 1918 fled the country, eventually settling in New York. Between 1925 and 1942 Siloti taught at the Juilliard Graduate School. Found in the collection of the State Tretiakov Gallery, Moscow.
