the Artist, who became a symbol of Soviet unofficial art, Anatoly Zverev stands out even among its distinguished colleagues-современников. According to Pablo Picasso, he was "the best Russian painter" and the largest collector of Russian avant-garde George Costakis considered him the first Russian expressionist. His work was free from red tape and established norms of Soviet official art, and from any doctrines andegraudnym associations. His life was a challenge to narrow-minded "common sense", the image was a living reminder of the free artists of the past: a little malty, eccentric, endlessly talented and suffering from lack of money, the hero of anecdotes and legends, hiding from the police and creating paintings for a couple of minutes, drawing all that is at hand, — paint, ketchup, mustard.
