About: The Russian Communist revolutionary Vladimir Ilyich Lenin at left, holds (from left to right) President Woodrow Wilson, Prime Minister David Lloyd George of England, and Premier GeorgesClemenceau of France in check, likely referring to the successful establishment of the Communist government in 1919. Boardman Robinson, like many liberals, staunchly supported Communism until the Moscow-Berlin non-aggression pact of 1939 disillusioned them.
