“In occupied Mariupol, a monument to the artist Arkhip Kuindzhi was removed. The cultural fund of this city was another destruction by the Russians. The monument was erected again in 1984. It is located in Greek Square,” the department notes.
The city council reminded that Artur Quintshi is from Mariupol. His most famous works: “Moonlight Night on the Dnieper”, “Ukrainian Night”, “Birch Grove”, “Red Sunset”. They are housed in some of the world’s most famous museums, especially the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art.
In 2010, the Kuintji Museum was opened in Mariupol. The Russians managed to steal almost two thousand exhibits from there, including paintings by the famous artist.
