Sovetskii Khudozhnik (Soviet Artist), Moscow

Sovetskii Khudozhnik (Soviet Artist) was a publishing house that chiefly served the Artists’ Union of the USSR. The house was founded in Moscow in 1969 during a period of reorganization within the publishing sector. Sovetskii Khudozhnik published albums, art reproductions, postcards, and art books in addition to catalogs, brochures, and posters. It also turned out illustrated monographs on contemporary artists and collections. In the early 1990s, Soviet Artist was renamed Galart Publishing House.
