22-nd of June, the date when the Great Patriotic War began, there was an opening of an exhibition dedicated, conditionally saying, to the battle-painting.
However the basis was formed by initial children’s drawing (such drawings are usually made by boys in the pre-juvenile age): on either side of  a sheet two armies, two forces approach each other. One of them usually is called “our people”, another – “enemies” (the sort of red army-white army, soviet people – fascists, musketeers – cardinal’s guardsmen, Indians - white people etc.) However, more neutral images also are often met (“the battle of Englishmen and Frenchmen”).
