The artist Boris Sveshnikov (1927-1998)

Dear all,
I am writing to ask if anyone happens to know anything much about the artist Boris Sveshnikov.  I have ordered a book by Dudakov and I already own the book by Jane Sharp and Norton Dodge.  And when MEMORIAL published their excellent  Sveshnikov album in 2000, it was me who translated Igor Golomstock’s text, and the extracts from Sveshnikov’s letters.  I am in correspondence with Irina Galkova, the director of the Moscow MEMORIAL museum.
