Adriana Solomonovna Magidson was a painter, a graphic artist, theatrical artist and a designer of Soviet propaganda posters. She was a member of the Union of Artists of the USSR and a member of the A.Kh.R.R. (Association of Artists of Revolutionary Russia). According to one source, Magidson was born in 1906 in Moscow. In her youth, she studied at Vkutemas (Higher Art and Technical Studios) in that city. While a student, she participated in an internship at the Bolshoi Theater working in their decoration shop. In addition, Magidson worked at the Meyerhold Theater in Moscow.
Sovkino was established in late 1924 as the All-Russian Photographic and Industrial Joint-Stock Company. It was dissolved when state-supported film production shifted over (in May 1930) to Soiuzkino. Film poster production was handled by Reklamfil'm, the office responsible for designing, approving and distributing film posters.
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.
