Viktor Zaretsky


Ukrainian secession. Klimt period


One of Zaretsky's most famous works. There are several excises to the work, dated by different years, which were sold at auctions with tenders. The theme of the bus was carried through the whole artist's life.

The painting "In trolleybus" is the quintessence of Zaretskiy's Art. The whole scale of colors and shades is involved. This is a classic Ukrainian expression.

Provenance: The work was bought at the artist's workshop in Koncha-Zaspa in the 90s of the XX century from Maia Zaretska, the second wife of the painter.
