G.I. Matvejevs, who graduated from the Brussels Royal Academy of Arts in 1937, received a gold medal and a free studio, with the opportunity to supplement his knowledge at the academy for another year.

Upon his return from Belgium, Matveyev organized an exhibition of his works together with Alexei Yupatov.
