St. Mary's Square in Lviv
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 artist depicted St. Mary's Square with a monument to Adam Mickiewicz from the southwest. Two military cars driving on a snowy road are depicted in the center of the composition. On the left there are black figures of the city's inhabitants. Against a dark background, only the monument to the poet serves as a bright focal point. The flashing light in the windows enlivens the gloomy cityscape performed in dimmed gray tones.
In the lower left corner there is the author's signature, date, and place of performance of the work “Odo Dobrowolski 915 Lwów”.
