Later, after the Revolution he worked with historical-revolutionary subject matters and presented his paintings at all exhibitions of Association of Artists of Revolutionary Russia from the time of its establishment.
The exhibition in the Stroganov Palace will comprise around 70 works of Nikolay Shestopalov from the Russian Museum and private collection.
