The Kherson Art Museum, together with folklorist Yaryna Syzyk and animation director Maria Ozirna, launched the “Stolen Art” project to restore paintings stolen by the Russians.

< p>Helped revive and modernize a copy of Dasha Astafiev's painting. The artist announced this on Instagram.

The first reproduced work was the painting by Mykhailo Bryansky “Portrait of a Girl in an Embroidered Dress”. In addition to the painting itself, the authors of the project decided to recreate the shirt depicted on the canvas. It was embroidered by Kherson guide Inna Mykutska during the occupation.

This is our attempt to respond in real time to the attempt to destroy Ukrainian cultural property. The format of virtual and at the same time live copies of paintings allows you to convey an important message – lost, but not forgotten. And even being in a foreign land, art can live and communicate with the viewer. But for this, we must constantly turn to memory with creative, interesting reminders, – said animation director Maria Ozirna.

The goal of the project is to draw attention to works of art that were stolen by the Russians from Kherson Art Museum named after Oleksiy Shevkunenko. During the occupation of the city, the invaders took more than 10,000 works of art from the museum fund. “Stolen Art” aims to prevent these losses from being forgotten.
