Victor Arnautoff and the Politics of Art

University of Illinois Press

Arnautoff resumed his long delayed art education when his father-in-law paid his way to attend the California School of Fine Arts (now the San Francisco Art Institute) from 1925 to 1929. There he worked with prominent artists, including Ralph Stackpole and Edgar Walter. First attracted to sculpture, he turned to mural painting. His longing for his motherland led him to read contemporary Soviet literature and to seek out the local Communist party for information about the Soviet Union.
