Lviv. The Building of the Galician Sejm
Information about author
This is one of ten works from the series of lithographs with the views of Lviv during the Russian occupation in the winter of 1915. The main facade of the building of the Galician Sejm (now Ivan Franko National University of Lviv) is depicted in a side view, from the then 3rd May Street (now Sichovykh Striltsiv Street). Only the risalit with one of the sculptures is clearly visible. However, even the lantern in front of the Sejm is not alight, as the deputies have no session there. In perspective, the corner of the building of the Austro-Hungarian Bank stands out as one of the main components of this cityscape. The work is performed in dimmed gray tones. Both the snow and the sky are depicted blackened.
In the lower right corner there is the author's signature and date “Оdo Dobrowolski / 915” written in italics.
