Miksha Roth. Painted by sunlight

In the Lviv Palace of Arts held an exhibition of Miksha Rota "Painted by sunlight". The project was organized with the assistance of the Honorary Consulate of Hungary in Lviv and the Society of Culture of Lviv Hungarians. The exposition includes sketches of stained-glass windows representing the main stages of the artist's career.

Miksha Roth was born in 1865 in Hungary. In 1885, he founded the first independent "Stained Glass Institute". At first, the master created works in the style of historicism, then he became interested in the styles of secession and art deco. His work has repeatedly received the highest awards at exhibitions. For the creation of new technological methods in stained glass art, the author was awarded the Gold Medal of the King of Italy. He was deputy chairman of the Hungarian Society of Applied Arts and a member of many art and philanthropic societies. The artist died in 1944.
