Abstract. This article is the first one to introduce complex overview of polychromes of Lviv churches, influenced by modernism. The main focus is put on stylistic analysis of mural paintings, as well as the application of the term «modernism» to church mural paintings is discussed. As a result of the study, we define two groups of polychromies. The first one is represented by such icon painters as Ivan Protsiv, Orest Horkavyi and Ivanka Krypiakevych­Dymyd. They belong to the older generation of Lviv artists; therefore they first started investigating stylistics of church polychromies, aiming to fill it up with special artistic meaning. These polychromies are highly influenced by works of Mykhailo Boychuk (Chapel of the Presentation of Jesus at the Temple at Ukrainian Catholic University) and Myron Levytskyi (Saint Anna`s Church). The second group of polychromies is represented by graduates of the Department of Sacred Art of Lviv National Academy of Arts, namely Sviatoslav Vladyka (Sacred Arts Association), Vasyl Syvak («Sofiya»). Their stylistic manner is approaching to works of Yuriy Novosilskyi, Yuriy Narbut, Yuvenaliy Mokrytskyi and Marko Rupnik. Additionally, technical peculiarities of mural paintings are also examined and described.

Keywords: polychromies of Lviv churches 1990—2015, mo­dernism, stylistics, icon painting.
