The name of Efrem Ivanovich Zverkov, an outstanding master of painting, who created his own direction in the art of the national landscape, has firmly entered the history of domestic and world art, has received wide recognition in Russia and abroad. His multifaceted work is a whole era in the artistic culture of our country. He was among those leaders who blazed new paths in Russian art in the 1960s. Efrem Ivanovich was the first Moscow artist to begin to explore the Russian North. In the late 1950s - 1960s, he made six long creative trips to the Komi Republic and the Arkhangelsk Region. Being the successor to the cultural tradition, the genetic carrier of the national mentality in his landscapes, he embodied the traditional system of spiritual values,conveying the idea of the common genesis of man and the universe. The northern region had an important influence on his work and on the nature of his "interaction" with nature. Zverkov was one of the first to express the "severe style" in landscape painting. Working in the North, he managed to show his enormous talent as a landscape painter, to influence the development of landscape painting in our country.
In 1972, by decision of the Soviet Government with a large exhibition, five painters - leaders of their generation were sent to Italy: D. D. Zhilinsky, V. I. Ivanov, G. M. Korzhev, P. P. Ossovsky and E. I. Zverkov… This large-scale exhibition was shown with great success in Rome, and then in the capitals of several foreign countries. This was the beginning of the international recognition of the art of these outstanding masters of painting. A native of the Tver region, Efrem Ivanovich subtly felt the poetry of the nature of Central Russia, masterfully conveyed its changeable appearance, its atmospheric and temporary states. The artist, using the features of oil painting, with a variety of transitional tones and shades, achieved the unity of volume, color, tonal and spatial solutions. He managed to bring a new breath to the art of lyrical landscape,combining national traditions with the original author’s beginning. His solo exhibitions have been shown in the best halls of our country: the Russian Academy of Arts, the Moscow Kremlin, the State Tretyakov Gallery.
