Viktor Kholodkov (1948-2015) devoted his life to the collecting and dealing of prominent works of Russian graphic art of the first half of the 20th century, allowing him to fulfill his passion for books, avant-garde design, and paper memorabilia.

Over the course of many decades, the dedicated collector acquired a multitude of books and artworks, meticulously labeling and archiving every single item. Many came directly from the most preeminent artists of the time, as well as from their families and estates. He also possessed a vast number of drawings from the famous collection of another avant-garde enthusiast, Nikolai Khardzhiev. After leaving the USSR in 1989 and settling in California, Viktor continued his work as a Soviet art dealer and critic, actively publishing various articles and contributing to several major Russian avant-garde exhibitions across the U.S., such as the 1991 Russia Under Fire in the 40s on the West Coast, and the 1992 Guggenheim exhibition The Great Utopia: The Russian and Soviet Avant-Garde in New York. Kholodkov also contributed to the archives of the biggest American institutions – his sophisticated selection of over 2000 Russian sheet music covers was acquired by The Library of Congress, and an extensive amount of material related to VKhUTEMAS is now at the J. Paul Getty Museum.
