Prior to the Artists' Union of the USSR, there existed the Union of Soviet Artists (Союз советских художников, Soyuz sovetskikh khudozhnikov), which was founded at Moscow in spring 1930 and included Moscow and Leningrad artists along with former members of the AKhRR.[2] The first exhibition of the Union of Soviet Artists was held on 15 April 1931 in Moscow at the exhibition hall of the co-operative society Khudozhnik.[3] The Union of Soviet Artists ceased to exist in 1932 after the government regulation.

Following the resolution "On the Restructuring of Literary and Artistic Organizations" by the Central Committee of the Communist Party (Bolsheviks) on 23 April 1932, unions of Soviet artists were established in the Union and autonomous republics, in krais, in oblasts, and in cities to supersede previous organizations.[1]

The first Congress of the Artists' Union of the USSR was convened in February–March 1957.[4]
