Gennady Dobrov’s drawing ‘The Frontline Veteran’ is part of an extraordinary series of thirty-six drawings called ‘The Autographs of War’ that the artist completed in the years 1974- 1980, when he travelled all over the Soviet Union, visiting the group boarding homes housing the semi-forgotten crippled and mentally ill veterans of the Second World War. Dobrov lived amongst them, learning their stories, helping them, and drawing them. The artist was not allowed to exhibit this series until Perestroika. The drawing is reproduced here with the permission of the artist’s widow, Lyudmila Dobrova.
