Artista: A.Kh.R. (Association of Artists of the Revolution) — А.Х.Р (Ассоциация Художников Революции)

The Association of Artists of the Revolution was an artist cooperative from 1928 to 1932. From 1922-1928 it was called the Association of Artists of Revolutionary Russia. Its members tended to be traditional, figurative easel painters who rejected avant-garde representation in art. They preferred to depict revolutionary Russia through the work and lives of the nation's laborers, the peasantry, the Red Army, scenes of industrialization and events of the October Revolution. During the 1920s, the Association rose to prominence in the Soviet art world. It opened branches throughout the USSR. The Association was abolished in 1932 when the government centralized nearly all of the independent art organizations in the USSR.
