Presentation of new acquisitions. Margit, Yolanta and other Lviv women

We invite you to a three-day program on February 1, 2 and 3, during which the famous artist, researcher and curator Andrii Boiarov will present the work of Lviv modernists. This is an unprecedented event, because the museum collection was replenished in the midst of a full-scale war with works from a period that is practically not represented in our collection. The two presented works – Margit Selska and Lyuna-Amalia Drexler are the starting point of the conversation about the phenomenon of women artists of the “artes” association and their work in the circle of Lviv modernism.

Lecture “Faces of our past: Ukrainian portraiture of the 16th – 18th centuries”

Lecture “Faces of our past: Ukrainian portraiture of the 16th – 18th centuries”
