The difference with the CIA theory is that the support was *secret*, and
(in the case of the Animal Farm movie) impacted the art in ways that the
artists were not happy with.

That said yes this is functionally equivalent to a continuation of
patronage of the arts by the power behind the throne, just from the
intelligence agencies rather than the church.
