The Apuleius’s novel, written in the 2nd century, was illustrated by the great Russian artist Anatoly Zverev.
«…I could compare Zverev with Picasso. Picasso also depicted antiquity (Ovid, «Metamorphoses»). But comparing Zverev and Picasso, it’s safe to say that Zverev, in some ways, is even better than Picasso. Zverev’s place in the world book illustration is obvious, but has not been marked by anyone so far. We should appreciate him as a book artist, because this is an unusual Zverev both for the public and for specialists.»
