Announcement of the auction ArtSale.info No. 132. Zverev, Yakovlev, Sveshnikov, Bakhchanyan, Namdakov, Ikonnikov, Izmailov, Gerlovin and others. August 3–9, 2022
According to legend, the sudden appearance of the Suprematist cycle by the expressionist Zverev in the late 1950s occurred after he saw works by Olga Rozanova and Lyubov Popova in the apartment of George Costakis. Being greatly impressed by the Russian avant-garde, he created a series of geometric abstractions of his own. It was a very short and vivid experimental period, which began suddenly and ended suddenly. Since the end of the 1950s, Zverev never returned to this subject.
