Abstract. The article deals with one of the genres of the famous Ukrainian artist Vasyl Ivanovych Zabashta’s painting heritage (1918—2016). The author’s concept of man is presented in the dynamics of formation and development of the artist’s creative methodology, through the prism of his connections with the family­home sphere, professional academic education, the role of ideological factors of totalitarian time. Special attention is drawn to the formally­shaped aspect of portrait works, in particular on the color factor as one of the key in the artist’s professional methodology. The most significant V. Zabashta’s works of the corresponding genre are being analyzed.

 Keywords: Vasyl Zabashta, fine arts, genre­type system, portrait, author’s methodology, formally­expressive means, concept of color, composition, harmony, contrast.
