Anatoly Zverev
1931-1986
COMPOSITION
signed in Cyrillic and dated '59' t.r.
oil over pencil on paper

One of the few underground Soviet artists who received international attention during his lifetime - a tramp, a rebel, a genius - Anatoly Zverev became a figure-head of his generation. He predominantly worked on paper and stylistically his art correlates most closely with the Expressionists. The present abstract composition is an incredibly early piece.

In 2013, the AZ museum opened in Moscow with a core holding of works by Zverev donated by one of George Costakis’ daughters. As the museum’s founder Natalia Opaleva discussed on the opening of the exhibition in Florence earlier this year, 'New Flight to Solaris', there is still no consistent term for Zverev and his peers, the so-called Escape Artists of this sale. 'It is called nonconformist, unofficial art, other art. We call it the Soviet renaissance… We want these artists [to be considered part of] world history. We don’t [think] they are a purely Russian, local phenomenon' (quoted in The Art Newspaper, May 2018).
