Artistic Impressions

Professor James Rubin, one of the world’s leading experts on Impressionism, visited Kyiv on 1 November to speak on works by Ukrainian impressionist Mykhailo Tkachenko. Tkachenko spent time in Paris in the same period as Monet, Manet, and Pizarro, with two of his paintings gifted to the French President at the time during an official visit by the Russian Tsar. Figaro, a leading newspaper in France, has called Tkachenko one of the “great Impressionists”. Rubin’s visit is to assist in creating an initial catalogue of the Ukrainian artist’s work. The five-day event, which included showings in Lviv and Kharkiv was organised by the BUCC.
