Soviet art through one picture artists
As a big fan of the USSR culture, I have a wide collection of paintings by various Soviet artists. However, from thousands of my albums, alongside with prominent Soviet artists and their galleries of paintings, there are artists of one picture. Sometimes, these artists died young (WWII, or an accident) and remained known as the authors of one-two painting created by them. Or, perhaps, they are one picture artists only for me, as I was able to find only one picture of a certain artist. However, as it often happens, one picture artist may become an author of lots of paintings, and if so, I will publish a separate post about such artist. It usually happens when I come across an illustrated album of an unknown before artist somewhere in this or that library. Meanwhile, scanned from different art catalogs, books, magazins and illustrated albums, these paintings may interest those who enjoy the art of the glorious USSR. The same as I do.
