Summary "Treasures of Ukraine chronicles the arts and heritage of Ukraine at a time when the country's people, culture, landmarks, and artworks are facing destruction and devastation. Created in partnership with a group of renowned artists, curators, and critics, this record of architectural monuments and artworks reaches from prehistory to the present day. Organized chronologically across eight chapters, Treasures of Ukraine contains more than 220 color images that showcase everything from Scythian gold, Byzantine icons, and wooden churches to gold-domed cathedrals, avant-garde masterpieces, and political art after the Orange Revolution, while accompanying texts reveal the history and significance behind the pieces. Examples of vernacular art weave Ukraine's dynamic and inextinguishable folk narrative through the book, providing visual texture as well as a sense of the nation's living history. This is a compelling account of Ukraine's history, told through the prism of a carefully curated selection of key monuments, architectural landmarks, and works of art. All proceeds will go to PEN Ukraine, to help Ukrainian authors in need." -- Provided by publisher.
