In 1926, the Moscow Art Theater produced Mikhail Bulgakov's play The Days of the Turbins, based on his novel The White Guard. Critics were outraged that Bulgakov portrayed the white officers with a great deal of sympathy, but the public loved the play, as did Stalin himself. The sets and costumes below by Ilia Sudakov were done to the usual standard of Moscow Art Theater realism.
