Almost a hundred paintings by popular artist Maria Prymachenko were exhibited in Lviv


The exhibition will continue until September 30, 2022.


In Lviv, on July 27, 2022, the National Museum named after Andriy Sheptytsky opened an exhibition of works by the famous folk artist Maria Prymachenko “I give to Ukraine!”.

The exhibition in five halls features six works by Prymachenko from the Lviv museum fund and 82 works from the private collection of Kyiv art critic, academician Edward Dymshits. The researcher has been collecting them for thirty years. He acquired most of the works of the artist’s family in his parental home in the village of Bolotnya.

Most of the compositions presented represent the late period of the artist’s work, the last decade of his life. Visitors can plunge into the fantastic world of amazing creatures, animals, birds, flowers.

In the work of Maria Prymachenko (1908 – 1997), the origins of Ukrainian pictorial and poetic folklore intertwine. The artist has developed his own artistic style, which is characterized by: bright and harmoniously balanced colors of works, a variety of compositional solutions, rich ornamentation – floral and geometric, and a variety of plots.

The exhibition will continue until September 30, 2022.

At the end of February 2022, due to the offensive of Russian invaders in Ivankovo ​​​​in the Kyiv region, a museum burned down, where about two and a half dozen paintings by Ukrainian artist Maria Prymachenko were stored. Local residents managed to save some of the artist’s works.
