The Drawings and Paintings
Until recently Alexander Zinoviev was not widely known as a painter. It is probable that not all his readers knew that his book covers were reproductions of his own paintings. He had exhibited his works twice (in Lausanne in 1980 and Paris in 1982), limiting his selection to drawings, small gouaches and water-colours. The first broad review of Zinoviev’s pictorial art was the exhibition held in the ‘Galerie der Zeichner’ in Munich in the summer of 1984. In 1985 he also showed his paintings in Senago near Milan. On that occasion a substantial catalogue was printed, which contained 115 reproductions of Zinoviev’s drawings and paintings.
