  brought to Ukraine a Czech enterpreneur and a fan of archeological research Vikentiy Khvoika. Once,
  instinctively predicting great discovery, he came to the village of Trypillya and started digging. Then a
  real sensation happened.......

  Long before the great holiday of the Holy Protection of Ever-Virgin Mary (October 14) I was lucky to visit the church of
  the same name that is located in the village of Parkhomivka, Kyiv region.
  The fifty meters bell tower can be seen from far away and coming closer to the temple one can figure out some details,
  not common for Ukrainian temples. Extraordinary is the fact that the temple is turned with its right side to central gates.
  In such a way one can see two mosaics at a time. The mosaics are made according to the sketches by Mykola Rerikh...

  SELF-PORTRAIT
1933, oil on canvas, 70x66,
Russian mus., Petersburg

Kasymir Malevich (1878-1935), one of the daring pioneers of the 20th century art, founded a new trend in art which he called Suprematism. Malevich had clear insight and logical mind; he went straight to the point which other artists reached through cautious evolution. Basing himself on current aesthetic theories he asserted that reality in art was the sensational effect of color. As an illustration, in 1915 he exhibited the painting of a black square on white background and claimed that the feeling this contrast evoked was the basis of art.
