Anatoly Zverev: Selections from the Kolodzei Art Foundation

Harriman Institute Atrium 12th floor International Affairs Building, 420 W 118th St, New York

Anatoly Zverev is a legend of the Moscow art circles of the second half of the 20th century. Zverev was born in 1931 in Moscow and he died in 1986 in Moscow. In 1948-1950, Zverev attended the Moscow School of Art and Industry, and he attended the 1905 Art School and was expelled after several months for his “personal appearance." In the mid-1950s, Zverev developed his own style based on expressive drawing and rapid improvisation. He sometimes drew without looking at the paper, using a finger, cigarette butt or hunk of bread. He rarely painted pure abstractions, tending to produce portraits, landscapes and still-lifes retaining elements of objective. Since 1957, Zverev’s artworks were showcased in many group and solo exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world. This exhibition features Zverev's artworks from the late 1950s to the mid-1980s, courtesy of the Kolodzei Art Foundation.
