Original Communist painting of the Leader Leonid Brezhnev. Leonid Ilyich Brezhnev (born 19 December 1906 , dead 10 November 1982) was the General Secretary of the Central Committee (CC) of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU), presiding over the country from 1964 until his death in 1982. His eighteen-year term as General Secretary was second only to that of Joseph Stalin in duration. During Brezhnev's rule, the global influence of the Soviet Union grew dramatically, in part because of the expansion of the Soviet military during this time.
His tenure as leader has been criticized for marking the beginning of an era of economic and social stagnation that eventually led to the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991. In spite of this, opinion polls in Russia show Brezhnev to be the most popular Russian leader of the 20th century. The painting was made in USSR 1970s.
