Lviv. St. Mary’s Square
Information about author
The watercolor work was performed before the artist's second trip to Paris, in the winter of 1911. One can see St. Mary’s Square in Lviv with the Adam Mickiewicz Monument in the center. The column, which is freshly decorated with a linear basement, is depicted as a monumental dominant of the square. Against its background there is the house No. 9 that doesn’t exist now; and the house № 8, in place of which now there is the Sprecher Building/Jonasz Sprecher skyscraper (a historical name). The towers of the Latin Cathedral and City Hall are rising above the roofs of the buildings. The Adam Mickiewicz Monument was opened in Lviv in 1904. The area around the monument was soon modernly redesigned.
In the lower left part of the work there is the author’s inscription “Odo Dobrowolski/ 911 Lwów” written in italics.
