Artist: Denisov, Nikolai Viktorovich — Денисов, Николай Викторович

The son of the renowned Soviet poster artist Viktor Deni, Nikolai Denisov became a successful artist in his own right. He began his design career just prior to World War II and he often worked in collaboration with his wife, Nina Vatolina, who happened to be one of his father’s favorite students. Denisov and Vatolina graduated from the Moscow Art Institute (class of 1942) and had married during the time they were students. Many of Vatolina’s early posters are co-signed by Nikolai Denisov as the two worked together consistently until Denisov was drafted into the Army during World War II. For his service, Denisov was awarded the medal For Battle Merit and the medal For Victory Over Germany. Vatolina divorced him in 1945.
