Lefty online magazine: issue 10, May 2016 to issue 17, November 2016

Dmitry Stakhiyevich Moor (real surname was Orlov) was born on October 22 (on November 3), 1883 into the family of a mining engineer in Novocherkassk. In 1898 he moved with his parents to Moscow. 5 Dmitry Moor did not get systematic art education; in 1910 he attended P.I. Kelin’s school studio. Originally he worked at Mamontov’s Printing House. From 1907 he had his caricatures published in print media, in particular in the liberal satirical magazine Budilnik. During his work in the Moscow magazine Budilnik the young artist took the pseudonym Moor, since Karl Moor – the main character of The Robbers by Friedrich Schiller – was akin to the creative temperament of the artist, so passionate and consecutive in his vehement aspirations for politically topical art that would extensively influence the viewers.
