SOMERSET, NJ, November 1, 2019: Yukhym Mykhailiv (1885-1935) was one of the most idiosyncratic and poorly understood Ukrainian artists of the early 20th century. His Symbolist landscapes, musically swirling stars and waterfalls, incandescent flowers in moonbeams, and delicate still-lives were completely out of step with the work of his contemporaries. His refusal to conform to Socialist Realism led to his arrest, exile, and untimely death in the Russian Arctic. Thanks to the extraordinary efforts of his widow Hanna Mykhailiva and his daughter and son-in-law Tetiana and George Chaplenko, more than 80 of his drawings, watercolors, oils, and pastels safely made the perilous voyage through wartime Europe and across the ocean to the United States. He was essentially unknown in pre-Independence Ukraine, but has since been the subject of a 1997 international conference and a 224-page monograph and catalogue raisonné published in 2003. Visible Music: The Art of Yukhym Mykhailiv will be the first presentation of this artist’s most important works in over 30 years, and will be drawn from the 72 pieces acquired by the UHEC in 2008 as a bequest from George Chaplenko. The exhibition will present not only his artwork, but also the historical and cultural influences that Learn More ...
