The Creative Union of Artists of Russia (TSHR) is an all-Russian public organization uniting about fifteen thousand professional artists throughout Russia. TSHR holds exhibitions, publishes catalogs and books on art, conducts classes and master classes in painting, drawing and sculpture for professionals and amateurs, organizes conferences, symposia, auctions, charitable events, implements large-scale international projects with the participation of artists and curators from different countries, and primarily from the former USSR.
The history of TSHR goes back to the beginning of the last century. In April 1917, the Professional Union of Moscow painters was formed, which included such outstanding artists as Konstantin Korovin, Pavel Kuznetsov, Aristarkh Lentulov, Robert Falk, and others. The tasks of the union, in particular, included the organization of exhibitions, auctions and lectures. In the summer of 1918, avant-garde artists emerged from this union. They organized their own association: the Professional Union of Artists of New Art. But soon the two alliances again became one. In 1919, the First All-Russian Congress of Artists was held, which established its own trade union, RABIS (“Workers of Art”). This organization was the first creative association of the country. Over the years, its members were world-class masters: K. Malevich, M. Chagall, A. Rodchenko, K. Chukovsky B. Ioganson, V. Serov, I. Grabar, Kukryniksy.
From 1924, RABIS became known as the All-Union Professional Union of Artists, and in 1953 it joined the unified professional union of cultural workers, forming in it the Joint Committee of the Trade Union of Graphic Artists.
In 1974, after the notorious “Bulldozer” exhibition, the government was forced to change its attitude to the informal art. Non-conformist artists were allowed to join the painting section of the Joint Committee of the Artists’ Union of Graphic Artists. In the basement of house number 28 on Malaya Gruzinskaya Street, an exhibition hall was equipped, where works by O. Rabin, E. Neizvestny, V. Nemukhin, O. Tselkova, I. Kabakov, A. Zverev, D. Krasnopevtsev, A. Kharitonov, D. were displayed. Plavinsky, K. Khudyakov, S. Simakov, E. Drobitsky, E. Evtushenko and other masters. "Sevens", "Twenty" and other exhibitions held by the Joint Committee of the Union of Graphic Artists, entered the history of national art.
In the 1990s, the trade union of artists and graphic artists, uniting the masters of fine art, book graphics, posters, photo artists, designers, architects, cartographers, etc., was transformed into a professional creative union, and then into the Creative Union of Artists of Russia, later included in International Federation of Artists UNESCO.
Currently, the Creative Union of Artists of Russia unites about 15 thousand painters, graphic artists, sculptors, illustrators, book designers, photo artists, designers, architects, masters of decorative and applied arts and folk crafts, art dolls, contemporary art from 47 regions of Russia.
The works of members of the Creative Union of Artists of Russia are in the State Tretyakov Gallery, the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, the Russian Museum, other museums of Russia and foreign countries.
