Alexey Prokopyevich Zinovyev (1880-1941) became the head of Talashkino carpentry workshops after the leave of S.V. Malyutin. Unlike Malyutin's works, furniture items based on the designs by A.P. Zinovyev are more functional, laconic in their form and decoration, and show greater care and attention to the natural wood texture. The items are decorated with scenes from myths and fairy-tales, images of fantastic beasts deliberately painted in primitive manner, as well as abstract images and symbols.
