School of History Opens Afanasii Luniov Curriculum Office


The University School of History solemnly opened a curriculum office named after Afanasii Luniov — a prominent Ukrainian teacher, University graduate, founder of the Parkhomov Museum of History and Art (since 2008, A. F. Luniov Art Museum), museum historian and art expert.

The opening ceremony was attended by the University President, Vil Bakirov; Chairman of the Board of Kharkiv Organization of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine, Viktor Kovtun; School of History administration, including Dean, Serhii Lytovchenko; Head of the Department of Historiography, Source Studies and Archeology, Serhii Posokhov; faculty members, the School students, Kharkiv Art Museum art historian Olha Denysenko, as well as Afanasii Luniov’s family and friends.

“It is gratifying that the University opens classrooms named after outstanding teachers and scholars who glorified it, as well as Kharkiv and Ukraine in general. One of these figures is Athanasii Luniov,” Vil Bakirov said. He also noted that the Parkhomov Museum of History and Art is a place the artist put a lot of effort into and where there is now an atmosphere of spiritual warmth, a sense of beauty, the desire to preserve it and pass on to the generations to come.

For their part, Serhii Lytovchenko, Serhii Posokhov, and Olha Denysenko welcomed the guests and spoke about their work with the prominent scientist, recalled his pedagogical mastery.

In the new room, there is a portrait of Athanasii Luniov, authored by Viktor Kovtun. Olha Denysenko described the portrait, “Afanasii Luniov is sitting freely, even a little relaxed, leaning on the back of the chair, propping his head with his hand. His half-smile is ironic, even audacious, with bravado. There is a very complex range of feelings in his look: there's pensiveness and there's sadness.”

In addition, mobile and stationary exhibitions dedicated to Afanasii Luniov were demonstrated during the event.
