statuetteKyiv National Museum of Art

It is one of the largest art museums in Ukraine. Its exposition displays works by famous Ukrainian artists of the 19 and 20 century and contemporary art.

But the most precious and literally priceless collection that you can see in this museum is the collection of old spiritual paintings of 17 and 18 and even from the 14 and 12 centuries. Some of them were painted in Byzantine Empire like an icon “St. Gorge in life” which was painted on the pieces of wood.

The spiritual old painting is one of the greatest and most unique collections in Ukraine. The paintings have been made on the wood and the icons showing famous scenes from life of justs and sinners.

The style of Ukrainian artists has always distinguished itself by fresh, bright and succulent colors. The subjects in the paintings are real people and plots are usually snapped out from life and hence full of energy and commemoration of life.
