Dmitry Apazidis worked as a diplomat in Greece, and later in the Sweden Embassy in Moscow. The collector George Costakis, being a friend of D. Apasidiz, introduced the latter to Anatoly Zverev. That is how one of the most significant collections of Zverev’s works started. It includes more than 1500 works of his early artistic life.
For the first time viewers saw Zverev illustrations to the novels by Ilf and Petrov "The Twelve Chairs" and "The Little Golden Calf", also some series of landscapes, sketches, portraits of nearest and dearest — the artist’s and the collector’s family.
Video art, created by the designer Anatoly Golyshev and the cameraman Yury Ermolin are also the part of the exhibition, together with the film of the director Irakli Kvirikadze about adventures of Anatoly Zverev told to his contemporaries.
The premiere of the episode took place on June 26.
