An exhibition of the works of art of the 17th-19th centuries, entitled “Rescued Treasures,” has kicked off at the National Gallery of Lviv (western Ukraine).
The exposition was prepared by the Lviv branch of the National Research and Restoration Center, as well as the departments of research and scientific restoration. The exhibition presents the results of the work of restorers for the last few years.
Visitors to the exhibition can see, in particular, an iconostasis of the 17th- 19th centuries, 17 icons of the 17th-18th centuries, three sculptures of the 18th and 19th centuries, as well as early printed books.
Head of the Research Center Taras Otkovych said that every museum in Ukraine had dozens and hundreds of exhibits that have to be restored. But the number of restorers is small, while the number of museum treasures, fortunately, is great.
The collection exhibited in Lviv is only a small part of the works of art that have been restored in recent years. Ukrainian restorers insist that if the restoration work continues at the same pace, then this work will take 200 or 300 years.
Visit the exhibition and enjoy the works of Ukrainian ancient culture.
