The exhibition presents Jan Henryk Rosen’s masterpiece – the wall paintings in the Armenian cathedral in Lviv. This eminent example of religious paintings from the interbellum period has never been presented to a large audience before. The artist brings together the elements of modernism and Byzantine art and, by the unique iconographic programme, helps to learn the exceptional character of the Armenian rite, largely unknown in Poland.
The exhibition, apart from Rosen’s work and the problems with its conservation, shows the works which Franciszek Mączyński i Józef Mehoffer created for the cathedral.
