This website is dedicated to Soviet Art.
The majestic and diverse Russian paintings always please audiences with their volatility and the perfection of art forms.
The Soviet painting period was included strongly into world art heritage.



Our collection counts more than 1000 works from the classical period of the Soviet art painting from the 1930th – till the 1980th year, including Soviet impressionism - "a socialist realism with a human face". Socialist realism is characterized by the glorified depiction of communist values, such as the mancipation of the proletariat, in a realistic manner. The Soviet painting of this period was included strongly into world art heritage.
The collection is a result of tireless search of the enthusiast of painting and collector Jean Veiss. During 1990 he visited hundreds workshops and met hundreds artists from Baltic to Vladivostok. The spirit of the age, the atmosphere and ideology of the country which was called USSR and the unique local color of painting of artists from Ukraine, Armenia, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Kazakhstan are reflected in this collection.
All genres - landscapes, portraits, industrial landscapes, still lifes, conversations and also theatrical sketches, - are presented by painting and graphics.



A lot of paintings from the artists of this collection, like A. Tutunov, N. V. Ovchinnikova, A.A. Okladnikova, A.V. Motorina, are included into gold fund of the Soviet painting long ago and are stored in many museums of Russia and in the Tretyakov Gallery. Now they count as national gold fund for the former Soviet Republics, such as Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan.
Graphics from VE Kaydalova, work from FU Madgazina (they are at Savitsky Museum in Nukus) and MA Saidov entered into a nationwide cultural heritage of Uzbekistan since long ago.
The artists presented paintings often from ordinary life of ordinary Soviet workers, steelworkers, farmers, doctors, who are the main characters of the system. Portraits' workers and genre paintings represent the people in all the splendor of their simplicity and strength.
As successors of the Russian school of painting, past masters of the school of its time, artists in our collection form a strong foundation of Soviet graphic record. Every artist his face, they all share a genuine interest in the subject, although they all lived and worked in the Soviet era, in the era when reigned the spirit of the official order.
