Санкт-Петербургская государственная художественно-промышленная академия имени А. Л. Штиглица
|School of Technical Drawing of Baron Alexander von Stieglitz; Leningrad Higher School of Art and Industry|
The Saint Petersburg Stieglitz State Academy of Art and Design, named again in post-Soviet Russia after its founder Alexander von Stieglitz and known in Soviet times as the Leningrad Vera Mukhina Higher School of Art and Design, was set up in Saint Petersburg in 1876 as the Baron Alexander von Stieglitz's School of Technical Drawing. In 1945, by decision of the Soviet Government School of Technical Drawing, it was re-established as the College of Art and Design which provides training in the monumental, decorative and industrial arts. In 1948 it became the Leningrad Higher School of Art and Industry. Vera Mukhina (the monumentalist author of Worker and Kolkhoz Woman), whose name had been a symbol of Soviet art, was not considered after the collapse of the Soviet Union personally linked to the school, and the educational establishment was renamed after its originator.
