Komar and Melamid combine various photographs of Tolstoy with their own renderings, cropping and overprinting the 19th-century moralist's portrait in a heady two-headed mix of art and politics. In one diptych the outline of a female nude at left is irreverently repeated over a Tolstoy's head at right. Circles and squares take charge in another, a phallic mushroom pairs with a Tolstoy oval in a third.
Estimate: $4,000 - $6,000.
Very soft handling creases, all unframed
