About the book

This book is the first detailed look at the contribution of artists from Ukraine to the phenomenon known as the “School of Paris.” At the same time that Picasso, Modigliani and Chagall were working in Paris, many artists from Ukraine were also living and creating art there, among them Alexander Archipenko, Mykhailo Boichuk, Sonia Delaunay, Sophia Lewitska, Vladimir Baranoff-Rossiné, and Hannah Orloff. In the early 1920s they were joined by Oleksa Hryshchenko (Alexis Gritchenko), Mykhailo Andriienko, Vasyl Khmeliuk, and many others — some achieved fame, others are long since forgotten. Ukrainian events that took place in the French capital are discussed against the general background of the “School of Paris.” The book’s Appendix includes a dictionary of Ukrainian artists in Paris featuring more than 250 individuals, as well as a chronology of Ukrainian events in Paris, both covering the years 1900-1939
