Possessing all the qualities of the monument, concrete 8-meter figure of Bakunin was the only monument in Moscow, in the spirit kubofuturizma. Among the materials of the period at the exhibition - a significant block of B. The Queen of graphic works (sketches of the Temple of communication of the people, "Architectural Fantasies"), a sculptural sketch of the monument to Bakunin (1918) and a series of fascinating archival photographs commits not survived the work (at the monument to Bakunin Myasnitsky Gates sketch of the monument to Marx).

In the mid 1920's, including those under the influence of the historical situation, BA Korolev turned to the realist tradition. To this period belongs a series of sketches a nude female figure, which differ in clarity and density forms. In these images read by a poetic vision of everyday life.
