One can have a different attitude to the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution, but one cannot but admire the art of artists who managed to translate in graphic miniature what a postage stamp is, an image that carries the idea of the main holiday of the country. Outstanding Soviet and foreign artists worked in this type of art - in small form graphics, which include postage stamps.
Collector S. N. Stepanov provided his collection of postal miniatures dedicated to the “Anniversaries of the October Revolution” to the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution for exhibiting at the museum. The exhibition’s exposition included 176 brands and blocks published before 1991, and about 100 brands, the anniversary, 2017. The collection of S. N. Stepanov includes rare and valuable instances of stamps. You can see stamps in the exhibition, sponsored by such famous Soviet artists as R. G. Zarins (1869-1939), who became the author of the first postage stamp “Liberated Russia” or “Hand with a sword, cutting a chain”, executed according to his sketch in 1918. Also presented are stamps of the Honored Art Worker of the RSFSR, the main artist of Goznak I.I. Dubasov (1897 - 1988), who created more than 150 postage stamps for various subjects. According to his sketch, one of the most famous brands, dedicated to the 5th anniversary of the October Revolution, was executed. The brands of other graphic artists of Goznak V.V. Zavyalov (1906 - 1972), Yu. Levinovsky and others are also displayed here.
