From the late 1910's to the mid 1920's BA Korolev worked in rare for Russian sculptor style of Cubism. He belonged to the circle of avant-garde artists who sincerely believe in the idea of transforming society through culture in post-revolutionary years, he actively participated in the plan of monumental propaganda. But it was his monument to Bakunin (1919) was the first in Soviet art work, destroyed by the formal and stylistic reasons. 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.

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.

In 1920-30-ies, the period of creative flowering, the sculptor has designed and partially realized its best projects. Leading monumental Soviet era, he participated in all major competitions for monuments, held in the USSR, and created a series of images of "heroes of his time" - Leo Tolstoy, Maxim Gorky, Stalin's.
