Panorama of 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 sketched the view from the attic of Lilien's house, which is on the corner of the current Pamvo Berynda Street and Svobody Avenue. There was a Kordian photo studio (it is likely that the artist used a photograph taken in this studio to perform autolithography). The artist depicted the city panorama in dark and gloomy tones against the gray sky, which is barely touched by the rays of the setting sun at the top of the composition. The tower of the Latin Cathedral rises above the snow-covered roofs in the foreground on the right; the City Hall Tower, the Korniakt Tower, and the dome of the Dominican Church are depicted in the distance. The Church of the Barefoot Carmelites stands out as a yellow spot in the background in the center of the composition.
In the lower right corner there is the author's signature and date “Odo Dobrowolski / 915” written in italics.
