Anne Bobroff-Hajal: Russian History

Bless my dear Rachel’s late night internet searches, which led me to Anne Bobroff-Hajal’s incredible Russian History illustrations.

Rachel came across THIS incredible illustration, with no explanation whatsoever. It turned out to be a depiction of Ivan he Terrible blessing a mustachioed baby Joseph Stalin (but it’s more entertaining with no idea that it’s supposed to be political satire). I rather enjoyed her recounting the Google image searches that finally led to the image source…including, but not limited to “flying broomstick mustache baby.”

The artist bio describes Bobroff-Hajal’s work as detailed and whimsical visual stories about powerful human motivations: love, greed, grief, competition, fury.

This art has so much character, I feel it could make even those who find history dreadfully boring pay attention
