Mykhailo Boichuk (?). Self-Portrait
Information about author
Presumably, it is a self-portrait of Mykhailo Boichuk, which was created in the early 1910s. It was the Lviv period that became the most productive for the artist in terms of his own creative realization. He just returned from the so-called art laboratory of Paris, where deep processes of formation of new stylistic trends in art took place; so it was a time of self-awareness and self-expression of the artist in Ukrainian art. In 1973, this unique exhibit item got into the collection of Lviv National Art Gallery from the private collection of Yaroslava Muzyka, who closely worked with Boichuk and his followers during the Lviv period of the artist's life. Yaroslava Muzyka lived in a house on Charnetskyi Street (now Vynnychenko Street, 26), where Boichuk's studio was located; she managed to preserve a significant amount of archival material and some works that remained after the artist’s moving to Kyiv.
