And all three of them — sixties belonging to or close to informal art. Their names were well known in the 1970-80-х years, but then was almost forgotten for various reasons. They are rarely at auctions. For collectors, the informal post-war art the appearance of these works at auction is an interesting possibility.

let's Start with Alexander Zhdanov. In the mid 1960-х it was an enfant terrible of the Rostov art College. He was expelled for "formalism" and violent temper, restored, and then again excluded. memories friends, Zhdanov professors frighten young students, and his example served as a caution: how not to do it. In his student days Zhdanov started making "trash" — easel works in mixed media with the inclusion of random materials. In the course were scraps, candy wrappers, cigarette butts, coins, and sometimes even banknotes, mixed with the plane of hardboard and covered with glue-бустилатом. Out talent. However friends-художники valued rather not cut-up techniques, and a fantastic sense of color Zhdanov. He was impressed by your ability to "revive" someone's painting a precise stroke, has helped to quickly correct the "bad" pictures to your friends-студентам.

Shortly after graduating from College, Rostov became him not in size, Zhdanov refused distribution: only wanted in Moscow. And left. Exhibited in the city Committee schedules on the little Georgia, but strongly in any group was not integrated, was more of a loner.

In 1982, the stepdaughter of Vassa Gerasimov, USSR national team in swimming, and escaped from the hotel in Spain and asked for political asylum in the U.S. Embassy. Say for Zhdanova it was a surprise. For almost five years, he and wife Galina Gerasimova tried unsuccessfully to obtain permission to travel to her daughter. Galina Gerasimov dismissed from the Institute, she went to work as a cleaner. Wrote letters, demanded — nothing helped. While they Zhdanov not chained themselves at the gates of the American Embassy in Moscow. Finally in 1987 they were allowed to leave. In America Zhdanov held several exhibitions, he was seen by collectors, bought Norton Dodge, and many others. Zhdanov died in 2006 at the hospital, in Washington.

In 1971 in Moscow there was held his personal exhibition, which was shown not only paintings, but also sculpture, including metal plastic. An important part of the creative life Kudryavtseva became artist-декоратором at "Mosfilm", where he worked for almost 20 years. The artist took part in the over 40 films, including "Stalker", "Sannikov Land", "Slave of love". Worked in theater and on television. Continued to be engaged in easel painting and graphics.
