16.10.2020 Online lecture: Ukrainian portrait of the 16th-18th centuries
From the Mongol invasion to the end of the 18th century in Ukrainian art lasted, in museum terminology, the Medieval period. Portrait painting of this period (‘confectionery’ by its name at the time) is a much richer phenomenon than modern Ukrainians imagine. Founded in the days of Kyiev Rus, it later acquired new features. At the lecture you will learn about the role of the portrait in the life and death of a medieval man, get acquainted with the functional purpose of the portrait (nature, votive, epitaphic, ceremonial), with the variety of its types (Cossack, Sarmatian, clerical, bourgeois), with stylistic evolution.
Lecturer Halyna Belikova, Head of the Department of Medieval Art at NAMU, will also talk about the criteria that distinguish the portrait of this era from other eras, its national features and supranational features. The viewer will see many faces of people who created our common history - political and everyday. The lecture will present the fate of family portrait galleries (princes Vyshnevetsky, Cossacks Galagan, Daragan, Counts Razumovskyi from Pokorshchyna and Sokyryntsi, Sulym from Sulymivka), a gallery of portraits of Kyiv metropolitans and archimandrites from the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra and many others.
Join the lecture via Zoom on Saturday, October 24, at 12:00.
