(Top art: “Allegory, Lenin”, oil, 24″ x 48″: The mad monk, Rasputin, spurred the fall of the Romanovs. He is off to the left receiving his sordid mystical powers. Lenin was smuggled into Russia by the WWI enemy Germans to undermine the Russian State. The last of the Romanovs would soon become martyred, not slain by arrows (like St. Sebastian), but instead by a hail of bullets. —± Tom Scullin)
