In 1928-1932 he was a member of the October association.

During the Great Patriotic War the artist drew posters revealing the

cruelty of Nazi invaders.

illustrations (1944) to the Tale of Igor’s Campaign. They express the

spirit of national romanticism in the “style of triumph”.

From 1922 he was actively engaged in teaching - in the Higher Art

and Technical Studios (aka VKhUTEMAS), Printing Institute and the

Surikov Art Institute.

Dmitry Moor died on October 24, 1946 in Moscow. His

autobiographical report “I am a Bolshevik!” was posthumously

published in 1967.
