His works are displayed in the best museums of the former Soviet Union: the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow, the National Art Museum of Ukraine in Kiev,and many others. He participated in many foreign exhibitions abroad. His paintings have found worldwide acceptance in galleries and private collections.
The scale of his personality corresponded to the level of his gift. He has enriched the Russian realistic tradition with new dimension, the best in best painting achievements, inspiring with light, piercing and transforming all around, sated with air and smells. He took the impressionist vision to previously unreachable depth and subtlety and created an exclusive Zakharov’s style which distinguishes him and makes his works memorable at first sight.
