In 1918, by order of the people's Commissariat of the capital of the company was nationalized. Since that time, the budget is formed only from membership fees, and 1920-е began to grow due to the benefits Glavnauka. Contests, purchases of paintings, the results of sums of money to help people in need has been discontinued. However, Society has been saved the building, art collection and library.

The exhibition is dominated by the art of landscape, as befits @ldquo;Куинджистам@rdquo;. Portraits and still lifes very little free composition of graphics and prints are absent. The exhibits are chosen within the boundaries of unconditional artistic literacy."

In 1921 the Society has renewed "Friday",-прежнему invited celebrity artists. The performances were paid donated for this purpose by the works of artists@the semicolon in the year were donated to two hundred works.

To strengthen the position of companies Chairman of the Board A. I. Kudryavtsev in the early 1930 lost post I. I. Brodsky, with high political authority. However, the attacks continued and reached its climax in the spring of 1930, in connection with the recent exhibition Society, held at the Academy of fine arts. A group of graduates Vhuteina sent an open letter printed on AHR magazine "Art into the masses" (1930, № 4, p. 32): "Considering that in the period of greatest tension forces of the proletariat in the struggle against private-капиталистическими elements of the cities and villages, when all forces should be thrown on the front of socialist construction, the main tasks from-фронта should be maintenance tasks requests ideological and political tasks of the working class. We, young artists... are protesting against the attacks of the petty-bourgeois, petty-bourgeois ideology, expressed in the person passing in the halls Vhuteina of the exhibition Society. Kuindzhi. All these @ldquo;Опавшие leaves@rdquo; (meant work I. I. Brodsky. — AI.), tales from taunami and mermaids (apparently, M. G. Platunov. — AI.), the gold-domed Church @ldquo;Спаса on the Porch@rdquo; carry the smell of philistinism, pull back the steady progress of Soviet art. We strongly demand the closure of the exhibition Kuindzhi!"
