In Lithuania, the Pranas Gudinas Centre for the Restoration of Museum Valuables of the Lithuanian National Art Museum will restore 100 paintings by Ukrainian artist Maria Prymachenko.

This was reported by the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy.

The Restoration Centre is the main training base for restorers of movable artistic property in Lithuania, including paintings and tapestries. It hosts workshops, seminars and lectures related to the preservation and care of museum collections.

The paintings will be delivered to Lithuania from the Zaporizhzhia Regional Art Museum. Currently, paintings from the Khanenko Museum are being restored in Lithuania. The Lithuanian Restoration Centre is also currently restoring a carpet from Mariupol.

In total, the centre's restorers have already worked with more than 50 paintings and 1,000 graphic works from Ukrainian museums. They are waiting for another 600 works and two interns.

Earlier, nine employees of the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra National Reserve were trained here. They learnt new methods of restoring works made of wood, metal, paper and fabrics.

Mariia Prymachenko is a Ukrainian folk artist in the genre of ‘naïve art’, laureate of the Taras Shevchenko National Prize of Ukraine, People's Artist of Ukraine. She is the author of over 800 paintings, her name was included in the World Encyclopedia of Art, and UNESCO declared 2009 the ‘Year of Maria Prymachenko’.

At the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, in 2022, a historical and local history museum in the village of Ivankiv in the Kyiv region, which housed about two and a half dozen of Prymachenko's works, burned down. However, local residents managed to save the artist's paintings.
