The sculptural group "Oktyabr" is executed by the sculptor A. T. Matveev by request of Council of People's Commissars for the Moscow anniversary exhibition of art works "10 years of October". It wasn't succeeded to transfer group to bronze at once. After closing of the exhibition the plaster sculpture was open-air for a long time. Over time plaster started collapsing.
In 1934 the sculpture came to the State Russian Museum. The bronze casting of Oktyabr group was made by this plaster original to be installed in front of the building of the Big concert hall built by 50-year anniversary of October revolution.
