Yevsey Yevseyevich Moiseyenko (Russian: Евсе́й Евсе́евич Моисе́енко; 28 August [O.S. 15 August] 1916, in Uwarowichi – 29 November 1988, in Leningrad) was a Soviet Russian painter. He was a People's Artist of the USSR (1970), full member of the Academy of Arts of the USSR (1973), and Hero of Socialist Labor (1986).


Since 1936 Moiseenko lived in Leningrad. He was trained at the Academy of Arts under Alexander Osmerkin and taught at the Academy from 1947, becoming a professor in 1957.[1] Moiseyenko developed the theme of romantic heroism, which can be seen his paintings such as The Reds came, 1961; Comrades, 1964; Sweet Cherries, 1969; all of which are exhibited in the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg.[2]

He also painted portraits: portrait of artist A. A. Osmerkin, 1970; portrait of art historian G. V. Kekusheva, 1971, exhibited at the State Russian Museum and still-lives. The series of paintings Memory (1976–80) was awarded the State Prize of the USSR in 1983.
