Sergey Mikhailovich Orlov (1911–1971) was a Soviet painter, ceramicist and sculptor specializing in depicting Russian historical figures.[1][2]

Orlov worked in ceramics and porcelain for decades until his first large-scale commission, the 1954 equestrian statue of Yuri Dolgorukiy on Tverskaya Street, which he won by competition.[3] Other work includes the 1955 monument to Russian explorer Afanasy Nikitin in his medieval home of Tver,[4] a group called "Belorussian Partisan" in a passage in the Belorusskaya (Koltsevaya Line) station of the Moscow Metro, and work on the Main Gate of the All-Russia Exhibition Centre.
