The inhabitants of Kolyma will be able to get acquainted with the works of an outstanding painter who stood at the drains of the creation of the Magadan Dramatic Theater until November 13.

Gorky (officially opened 5 September 1941). In 1945 year, after the expiry of the term of imprisonment, Shukhaev continued to serve there as the main artist-director for another two years.

"These sketches were saved by a miracle - they were almost thrown out during another subbotnik, when enthusiasts cleared attic spaces in the theater building," says Svetlana Budnikova, deputy director of the Magadan Regional Museum of Local Lore. "By a fluke, invaluable drawings were discovered by Vladimir Myagkov, artistic director of the Magadan Music and Drama Theater, who immediately recognized the master's hand and handed the work to the museum."
