IZOGIZ

// ИзоГиз // Государственное издательство изобразительного искусства // Gosudarstvennoe izdatel'stvo izobrazitel'nogo iskusstva // State Publishing House of Fine Arts

IZOGIZ was the fine arts section of OGIZ (Association of the state book and magazine publishers) that was established in 1930 to centralize all publishing in the Soviet Union. Posters, art magazines and artistic books were placed under the IZOGIZ banner of OGIZ. In 1963, a reorganization in publishing meant that IZOGIZ was re-named Sovetskii khudozhnik, "Soviet Artist".
