Fonvizin "In the Circus"
"Zverev's works are exhibited in the Brochetain Collection alongside the aquarelles of Fonvizin. Not only was the latter one of Zverev's favourite painters, his predecessor and symbolic protector, but for the non-conformist movement he expressed a particular artistic quality. Eric Bulatov laughs, 'There was a joke at the time, ' Who are the formalists? ' to which the answer was, 'Painters whose name starts with an F - Falk, Favorski and Fonvizin'. These three F's Bulatov continues, 'Were considered to be the happy few who had understood the mysteries of real art".
