The formation of personality Anatoly Nikolaevich, the attainment of the profession had in the twenties of the last century. It was a time known in history with the epithet "roaring", when the country was rocked by a massive event.

Being a member of the guerrilla movement, he knew about the threat of life firsthand, in between combat operations, he painted portraits of his friends — the brave and steadfast people. Some of these works, "living evidence" of the era, represented in our exhibition are not only artistic, but historical value.
