I am starting to think Khrushchev was a keen eye for visually appealing artwork. This one would not be on the "keep" list.

I'm thinking of some of the monster scenes from the 1982 film "The Thing."

Look like it is part of the new Venom movie.

Looking at just the top half of the image, I kinda like it. The bottom half futzes it all up.

There's your problem – the title is bad. It should be "Woman Watching TV." The artist was ahead of her time.

It took me a while, but I finally interpreted why I find it appealing -- it's the pathos of a mother (left figure) being proud her little one (uppermost part of right figure) is striking out on its own while concerned/disappointed her baby doesn't seem to fully understand the concept behind why their species is called 'facehuggers' rather than 'scalphuggers.'
