Male Portrait (Andrey Sheptytsky)
Information about author
It is worth noting the influence of Andrey Sheptytsky, a prominent figure of the time, on the worldview of Mykhailo Boichuk. His moral and material support (as well as the support of Mykhailo Hrushevskyi) allowed the future master to get acquainted with the cultural heritage and achievements of prominent European cultural centers such as Vienna, Krakow, Venice, Florence, Munich, and Paris, as well as to receive professional education. In the 1910s, there were a number of sketches of the portrait of Andrey Sheptytsky created by Mykhailo Boichuk. They solve various tasks related to the expressive possibilities of lines, strokes, and the chiaroscuro; however, they have something in common, namely the artist's desire, as in the iconography, to show not the rough materiality but the spiritual basis of the image. The portrait is characterised by an elongated nose and wide-open bright eyes.
