Since 1931 V.Matukh has lived in Leningrad and as the fates decree joined experimental graphic workshop by the Artists Union in Leningrad. G.Vereysky, N.Tyrsa and E.Kruglikova were at the head of the workshop. Here, together with her young colleges Y.Syriev, L.Timoshenko, I.Ez, the young artist took up coloured engraving. The first black and white imprint was used by Vera Matukh as a base on which infinite variants of collages made of construction paper were laid.
