The Armenian Cathedral and Its Creators - exhibition in Armenia

2017-10-06
On October 6, 2017 another presentation of the exhibition entitled The Armenian Cathedral and Its Creators will be open in Geological Museum in Yeghegnador. Minister Jarosław Sellin, Secretary of State in Ministry of Culture and National Heritage will participate in that event.

The exhibition presents Jan Henryk Rosen’s masterpiece – the wall paintings in the Armenian cathedral in Lviv. This eminent example of religious paintings from the interbellum period has never been presented to a large audience before. The artist brings together the elements of modernism and Byzantine art and, by the unique iconographic programme, helps to learn the exceptional character of the Armenian rite, largely unknown in Poland.

In 2008, the Heritage Academy Alumni Association began to organise interventional conservation and renovation works of the wall polychromies painted by Jan Henryk Rosen. All these actions, up to now, have been carried out with the financial support of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage in close co-operation with the Management for the Historic Environmental Protection of Lviv Municipality.

This will be fourth, after Yerevan, Etchmiadzin and Jermuk presentation in Armenia.
