Azerbaijani artist Hasan Hagverdiyev was a celebrated master of brush technique. His primary artistic focus was in portraiture and scenery. Poster art appears to have been only a sideline of his work output. In October 2017 in Baku, Azerbaijan a 100th anniversary exhibition was held in his honor. His son, Husein Hagverdiyev, is a noted Azerbaijani contemporary artist of the 21st century.
