Graphic artist Dmitry Orlov (1883-1946) gained fame under the pseudonym Dmitry Moor designing posters, books and magazines. He carved a niche for himself as a creator of visual propaganda and sharp caricatures. From the earliest years of Bolshevik rule, his works were evaluated highly by Soviet authorities.
