Leopold Levytskyi Memorial Museum of Art

  • Memorial museums

The museum was created in the private residence of the artist. The graphics and painting show his difficult creative path. After the beginning of the Soviet occupation, Levytskyi got in a complicated situation because of his favourable political attitude towards the Communists.

Many members of Lviv community, who suffered at that time and were subjected to repression, did not forgive the artist a compromise with the Soviet authorities. After all, his attitude was not accidental.

While studying at the Academy of Arts, he was fond of left avant-garde ideas and was a member of the Krakow Communist group of artists. In 1932, after the exhibition with left ideas, L. Levytskyi was imprisoned for four months and then expelled from the Academy of Arts. It seems that this story of his life saved him in the post-war period. The artist is buried at the Lychakiv cemetery in Lviv.
