    Background: VISNEWS cameraman in Moscow took time off from Mr. Macmillans tour and went Feb 25 to an exhibition opened in December 1958 and still drawing large crowds and much critical comment.

    Its the International Socialists Art exhibition at the Manege, where 12 countries are represented by two thousand works.

    As always with shows of modern art the crowd seems divided in its opinion into "I don't understand" and "Isn't it funny".
