Museum Story

Anatoly Zverev. Gogoliada

One of the main discoveries of the AZ Museum - illustrations of Anatoly Zverev to the classics, stored in archives and private collections. In the history of Russian art, there are no equally expressive drawings to Gogol's novels ("Viy", "Taras Bulba", "the Missing letter"), which foresee the innovative discoveries of the cinema of our time. "Gogoliada is a book that consists of free illustrations. Zverev on absolute performs well. And in the expression of longing passion and feelings, and in the image of beauty. It seems to me that Zverev took from his soul everything that weighed on him, disturbed him, and, perhaps, frightened him, and transferred it to these sheets. And he gave us his feeling, as none of the artists who illustrated Gogol could.»
