Exhibition Celebrating Ukrainian Modernist Mykhailo Zhuk's 140th Anniversary is on view in Lviv
From August 23 to September 27, 2023, the Andrey Sheptytsky National Museum in Lviv will host the project «Mykhailo Zhuk — the Herald of Revival», dedicated to the 140th anniversary of Mykhailo Zhuk. He was a graphic artist and painter, a master of book and decorative design, an active public figure, and a writer of Soviet-era Ukraine.
Zhuk always positioned himself as the Ukrainian artist: for example, in 1911 he took part in the First Ukrainian Art Exhibition, which united artists from the eastern, western, and central regions. In 1917, Zhuk became a co-founder of the Ukrainian Academy of Arts, which influenced the further development of national art.
