Anatoli Zverev, Portrait of the painter Vladimir Nemoukhin

Zverev's free drawing and sketches show the perfect lines of a virtuoso and the extraordinary liberty of colour and powerful energy of his forms are masterful. One of the best works by the artist in the Lili Brochetain Collection is his seizing, "Portrait of Nemoukhin" wherein the painter, who appears as a dreamy long-faced young man with a huge forehead, seems to have been portrayed by just a few brushstrokes. "My God, but it is incredible!" Nemoukhin cried when he saw this portrait years later in the Brochetains' apartment in Paris.
