Yakiv Pauchenko’s icon-painting studio

   On April 12, 2017 before Easter O.O.Osmerkin Art-Memorial Museum presented a travelling exhibition “Yakiv Pauchenko’s icon-painting studio” in Kirovohrad children’s art school named after O.O.Osmerkin. The exhibition allowed pupils and teachers to travel through time, because its exposition consisted not only of unique photographs, documents, sketches and projects which tell about work of iconostasis, artistic icon-painting and gold-plating studio of Elizavethgrad architect Ya.V.Pauchenko, but also reproductions of icons from the museum collection of sacral art, one of which is “The Mother of   God with a child” the end of the XIX century, supposedly, created exactly in this studio.
   Yakiv Vasyliovych Pauchenko (1866-1914) – one of those architects who created architectural ensemble of the historic centre of the modern Kropyvnytskyi (Elizavethrad). Upon his projects were constructed many buildings, which now are listed buildings, including Holy Ascension Cathedral in Bobrynets, Kirovohrad region. Also Yakiv Pauchenko had successfully led iconostasis, artistic icon-painting and gold-plating studio, which was inherited from his father. A photo album, which brightly illustrates work of this studio, which started work in 1861, is being kept in the department of rare books of Kirovohrad Regional Universal Scientific Library named after D.I.Chyzhevskyi.
