“The palette that enlivened the artistic space of the Carpathians” by Fedir Manailo

On 28 November 2018, in the gallery of European painting “Euro-Art” it was opened an exhibition of works by one of the coryphaei of the Transcarpathian School of painting Fedir Manailo. The exposition is titled “The palette that enlivened the artistic space of the Carpathians”.

32 works from different periods of the artist’s creativity formed Rivne exposition to the 40th anniversary of the memory of one of the founders of the Transcarpathian School of painting. Almost all works are from the private collection, so art lovers now have a wonderful opportunity to see works of art that are usually not available for viewing. As well, there are individual paintings of the artist from the family collection. In particular, early canvases and pumpkins were brought to the exhibition by the granddaughter of the artist Viktoriia Manailo.

“It should be noted that the interest of this gallery in Transcarpathian art is long-standing and permanent. A year ago there was an exhibition of A. Kotska, now – F. Manailo, and it is very pleasant,” – Viktoriia Manailo noted.

Numerous visitors came to the gallery on the day of the opening of the exposition. Art historian Mykola Bendiuk emphasized the uniqueness of the exposition: “Here we see the whole complex of different Manailo, his formation – with colour, volume, and perspective... This is exactly Manailo, who tried to experiment with folk and Hutsul art. Here is his work “Forest” – a separate picture, where he is no longer Manaillo, but a highly professional, European artist. Every 10 years he tried, changed, he never stopped – and this is the most valuable in the artist. And, all of this we can see at this exhibition.”

The exhibition of Fedir Manailo will last in the gallery of European painting “Euro-Art” in Rivne until 3 March 2019.

The text was prepared according to the information of Viktoriia Manailo, materials of the gallery of European painting “Euro-Art” and the TV channel UA: Rivne.
