Anatoly Zverev is a gem even among Russian artists. He is truly unique, he had a magnificent gift of turning everything into art. Gentle, tender soul, eyes that can see in and out, hand capable of making both tiniest lines and powerful strokes with precision and taste. It helps if before going there one can spend several hours reading about Zverev - his life, relationships with world, struggles, and what other say about him, and understand what a person and talent he was if he, being obviously the most gifted one, didn't have enemies. Many of his works were lost in a fire, many disappeared, many went overseas, so having - finally - Zverev's paintings in his museum, is great, even though the exhibit is, unfortunately, very, very small.
