  • The Museum of Sacral Baroque Sculpture (The Museum of Johann George Pinsel). The museum's exposition consists of 32 exhibits representing art of European and world level.

    The museum is located in the architectural monument – the former Poor Clares Cathedral designed by Paolo the Roman and built in 1605-1607. The frescoes of the cathedral were created in 1670. The works of prominent Lviv sculptor Johann George Pinsel exhibited in the museum constitute a remarkable phenomenon in the history of Ukrainian and world culture. Under the influence of Eastern Byzantine art the master who was of European origin and education created an original heritage second to none in the 17th-century Europe. He founded Lviv school of Baroque sculpture where about forty masters underwent instruction.

    In the late 1750s Pinsel created the sculptural ensemble in St. George Cathedral in Lviv, and also worked in St. Martin Cathedral in Lviv and in the town of Monastyrska in Ternopil Region. The brightest of Pinsel’s works presented in the museum in terms of emotional influence is the altar from the cathedral of Hodovytsa village near Lviv (sculptures “Abraham’s Sacrifice” and “Samson”).
