The work “School” is characterized by the dominance of folk art motifs over the style of neo-Byzantism. However, in this drawing, Boichuk also formed a double code of perception, as he combined the plot with everyday human reality while resorting to iconography. 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.
