The History of the Ukraine is his favorite them especially the History of Kossaks. Most of his Pricelist and Details works are revived the Glorious history of the kossaks-knights Heatman(headman) Sahaydachny (Sahaydak) is one of his last pictures. Heatmsn?s (chief)-personality is phenomenal, the interest to him verges on some mystic admiration. Such is the age of the Ukrainian Renaissance.
The theme of kossaks is also reflected in his pictures The Patrol, The Kasi-Karmen, The Islam-town.
Others works are interesting as well. His vanguard pictures are full of expression they are different on sense and technique undoubtedly. His pictures strike by its rich pastel emotional sonority, which the Master attains using the large color differentiation. Some dabs put on the Canvases fix and stress the color nuances helping searching. For sensation of unreal words...
Quiet peaceful and realistic sceneries have found their adorers. We hope the public will found the expanse for mind and heart and feel be the participant of search in art, feel the creating freedom assembly halls, mosaic, bas-reliefs, and monument to kossaks as well.
