Anatoly Zverev (1931 – 1986) is a great artist, whose work still does not fully meaningful and appreciated. Obviously, that in the second half of the twentieth century in English (and perhaps world) art was not as powerful and unique phenomenon, with equal geniuses of the past, who transformed the spiritual "timelessness" of his era and set the landmarks of the future. Cannot be attributed him to any flow or direction; Zverev is a holistic and original phenomenon which can be understood only in the perspective of High Art (past and contemporary). Without exaggeration, every show (starting the first, posthumous, 1986) is an incredible full. And with every year the interest to the artist is only strengthened. However, the legacy of Anatoly Zverev still scattered in private and foreign collections.

He was collecting not only art, but also biographical material Turning point to the creation of the Museum was the exhibition – project "Zverev in the fire" (2012) is a miraculously preserved Zverev graphics from the collection of Kostaki. For the museum were acquired a number of important collections, held in the archives of research, designed the exhibition and publishing programme.
