The National Art Museum of Kiev is the heart of Ukraine art, culture, values, and ethnicities. This Museum was built a hundred years ago and was known as City Museum of Antiques and art; at that time it wasn’t being considered a true concept of professional art and culture. A few years later, valuable ethnographical art was displayed in the museum and the founders proved that everything in the museum had a real value especially when it came to presenting and indicating the fine art of Ukraine and other cities including Kiev or Kviv. The collection of art grabbed the attention of million people to the museum and new stuff was added. History of all those people who either born or worked in Ukraine was also added in the list of collection along with national-conscious artists (even those artists who had left the country). If you are the fan of art, but you have just a few days for your Ukraine trip, we suggest you to check out some of the kiev accommodation offers and extend your stay in order to explore all of the items from the museum. The founders of the Museum believed that people who had moved to other counties also contributed in enriching the historical culture of the country; therefore, their work details should be reserved as the main art details.
Series of classy paintings, artworks, and craftworks were storied in the National Art Museum of Ukraine ad some of the artists whose work is stored are T. Shevchenko, I. Repin, V. Borovikovskiy, and N. Pimonenko. The collection had also detailed artwork done by V.Tropinin, M.Vrubel and G.Narbut. Pictures, paintings, and portraits of Cossacks times were also reserved as the part of the country. Humrours pictures by a Medieval incon “Cossack Mamay,” were also put on the display for the visitors. Briefly, everything that had any historical value was stored in the collection. You might have heard of Native Ukrainian Kazimir, he was famous for creating a marvelous masterpiece named as “The Great Martyr.” His entire collection can be seen in the museum today, because the founders have collected all possible artworks from the natives and foreigners.
For art and antique lovers, the building holds a huge asset of collection to present and show. The museum was built in 1898 by different architects. Kiev City Museum of Antiques and Art have much more for you including caricatures of Mamay and art from Moscow and St.Petersburg.
