The St. Petersburg Union of artists dates back to August 2, 1932, when the Leningrad branch of the Union of Soviet artists (LOSSKH) was formed at the General meeting of artists of Leningrad.
The Union of artists has largely preserved the traditions of the main «donor organizations»: the Union of Russian artists, the society for The encouragement of arts (in the building once owned by this society, the Board of the St. Petersburg Union of artists and its Exhibition center is located since 1932), the Society of artists named after A. I. Kuindzhi and others. All these years the St. Petersburg (Leningrad) Union of artists was and is one of the strongest creative organizations of artists of Russia. St. Petersburg Union of artists is a collective member of the International Confederation of unions of artists, officially being one of the successors of the «Union of artists of the USSR».
