The picture was purchased in 1912 in Berlin at the auction sale of the collection of the Hamburg collector Weber. On the auction the product got after a long journey by private collections. The first documentary evidence of the painting dates back to 1827, when it was still owned by the Spanish artist Vikente Lopez-i-Portanya, and soon became the property of Infanta of Spain and Portugal, Sebastian Gabriel de Bourbon and de Bragança. The heirs of Infanta, who at that time lived in France, in the town of Po, in 1891 bought a London antique house Colnegy. However, the following year, the portrait was resold to the German consul Eduard Friedrich Weber. Heirs of the latter made a posthumous sale of his collection in Berlin. All this time, the picture was considered a portrait of another princess – Infanta Marianne Teresa (1638-1683), the eldest daughter of Philip IV from the first marriage. Subsequently, she became the queen of France, the wife of Louis XIV. It was only during the prewar years that it was found that a portrait girl – the youngest daughter of the king, the child of his second wife, Marianne of Austria.

In one of his interviews, Prydatko-Dolyin admits that the Arctic gave him a palette, and science is an object for painting: “For me it would be a mistake to end only with an institution or art academy. All the same, now my mind is much wider. “Art helps us become citizens of the world.

The exhibition combines artist Nikita Kadan’s reflections, historians and other scholars on issues related to the crimes of Nazism and Stalinism, ethnic cleansing and other acts of violence in the 1930s and 1940s.
Among the heritage of the twentieth century there are countless and undefined graves and millions of dead. Their names are often unknown. And if known, then first of all in family retellings. Nameless in numbers, they become symbols and objects of memory, politics and research. At the same time, those related to mass violence, still have little meaning, especially locally. They continue to use and subordinate to a narrow ideological framework and political goals. The exhibition “(not) designated” is intended to give impetus to broader reflections and comprehension of the traumatic and still unspoken themes of our past.
The basis of the exhibition is the work of Nikiti Kadan, which consists of three series: “Chronicles”, “Pogrom” and “National Landscape”. Through artistic processing of photographs of victims of the worst mass crimes of the twentieth century, Nikita addresses the theme of violence and raises the question of the dangers of ideologizing and manipulating, crowding out the “awkward story” and the consequences of “competition of memories.”
The feature of the exhibition is the attraction of researchers, primarily historians, but also representatives of such disciplines as philosophy, anthropology, psychiatry, literature, law, visual studios. These are authors and authors from Ukraine, the USA, Poland, Great Britain, Germany and the Netherlands who work with source materials and participate in contemporary discussions on these topics.

Is and where is the boundary of the icon painter’s search for the Incarnation?

The word “kitsch” is an active turn of the European art dealers in the middle of the 19th century. and his problems became overwhelming in the 1930s. It was at this time that Clement Greenberg’s famous essay Avangard and Kitsch (1936) appeared, in which the author asserted that only art could save kitsch from dominance.
Again, artists and scientists talked about kitsch after the Second World War, but even in the 1950s there was no strict and clear definition for him. He posed so many questions that it was necessary to carry out large-scale research (as Herman Broch said) to find out. In the modern world, kitsch is part of everyday reality and it is worth talking and discussing more about it. Lecture by Bohdan Shumilovich will address the theoretical problems of kitsch, as well as how he became a part of Ukrainian culture and art.
