The Orthodox Church Art Collection

In 1945-1947 the communist rulers of the People's Republic of Poland deported about six hundred thousand Ukrainians from south-eastern Poland to the USSR or to the east and north.

The depopulated lands witnessed the premeditated destruction of many valuable objects of art-Eastern Orthodox and Greek Catholic churches.
The Lancut collection contains icons, banners, processional crosses, textiles and liturgical vestments rescued from this pogrom.
This collection of Orthodox church art, the largest in Poland, is stylistically of exceptional interest, as it was created in an area where Byzantine and Latin influences met. The collection includes precious icons from the fifteenth through eighteenth centuries.
