Sovietskii Khudozhnik (Soviet Artist), Moscow

Советский художник, Москва

Sovietskii Khudozhnik (Soviet Artist) was a publishing house that chiefly served the Artists’ Union of the USSR. The publishing house was founded in Moscow in 1946 and it turned out illustrated monographs on contemporary artists and collections. It also published art reproductions, postcards and art books, art catalogs, brochures and posters. During a reorganization of the publishing sector in the USSR in 1964, Soviet Artist merged with Izogiz, the fine arts section of Ogiz (Association of the State Book and Magazine Publishers). In the early 1990s, Soviet Artist was named the Galart Publishing House.
