Artwork description

Vladimir Putin wasn’t always the topless leader riding horseback that we’ve come to know and parody. No, he once was a lad with his very own pony tucked innocently between his legs. Barbara van den Berg imagines a “Mini-Me” version of the Russian leader, but with a single tear - the compassionate motif that ties her series together. Barbara takes her sympathetic approach from Giovani Bragolin’s ‘The Crying Boy’, which was mass-produced to profit the artist directly.
