Four Arts


(full name, the Society of Artists of the Four Arts), an artistic association active in Moscow from 1924 to 1931. The Four Arts was founded mainly by former members of the World of Art and the Blue Rose. It included Soviet painters, graphic artists, sculptors, and architects primarily of the older generation: L. A. Bruni, I. S. Efimov, I. V. Zholtovskii, K. N. Istomin, A. I. Kravchenko, P. V. Kuznetsov, N. N. Kupreianov, A. T. Matveev, V. I. Mukhina, A. P. Ostroumova-Lebedeva, K. S. Petrov-Vodkin, M. S. Sar’ian, V. A. Favorskii, and A. V. Shchusev.

Members of the association strove for high professional quality, as well as an expressive decorative style. In architecture, they advocated the reworking of principles of modern city planning. The Four Arts organized exhibitions in Moscow in 1925, 1926, and 1929 and in Leningrad in 1928.
