V. Yakovlev, Flower

"Two of the most tragic figures of the non-conformist movement in Russia, Vladimir Yakovlev and Anatoli Zverev, are also represented in the Brochetain Collection. The grandson of an early 20th century symbolist painter who emigrated back to Russia during the Stalinist period, Vladimir Yakovlev seems to be a unique and mysterious phenomenon since he suffered both from a serious mental illness and a severe visual impairment".
