Mid-Century Moscow School Portrait of Gentleman Oil and Mixed Media on Paper by Anatoly Zverev
Picasso called Russian painter Zverev (or Zuerev) “. . . genius painter of the 20th century. . .” George Costakis, the famous art collector responsible for introducing Zverev’s work to the attention of the West, called him “. . . one of the most talented artists in Russia – a unique phenomenon.” Anatoly Zverev (1931 – 1986) was a member of the Non-conformist movement and a founder of Russian Expressionism. He was harassed and persecuted by Soviet authorities throughout his career. We recently acquired a stunning Zverev original - oil and mixed media on paper, 15 5/8 inches by 23 3/8 inches, entitled Portrait of Gentleman. Signed lower right A.Z. ’57. Label on verso reads "A. Zuerev, To My Dear Ruth, G. Costakis" Provenance: George Costakis. Condition: very good; picture is beginning to slide down from its white adhesive mounts and would benefit from updated framing; there is a small puncture visible in photo 7 that was there before the original framing.
