b 1919 - 1994




The landscapes of Fedor Zakharov were introduced to Americans beginning in the 1990s when the first examples of Russian Impressionism were exhibited in galleries on both coasts and in the American southwest.

Zakharov’s paintings, with their broad strokes, abstraction and adherence to realistic form, immediately garnered admiration from both collectors and American painters.
