Nikifor in Lviv

Nikifor (1895, Krynica-Zdrój - October 10, 1968) (also known as Nikifor Krynicki and Epifaniusz Drowniak) was a Polish folk and naïve painter of Lemko descent. Nikifor painted over forty thousand pictures - on sheets of paper, pages of notebooks, cigarette cartons, and even on scraps of paper glued together. The topics of his art include self-portraits and panoramas of Krynica, with its spas and Orthodox and Catholic churches. Underestimated for most of his life, in his late days he became one of the most famous primitivist painters[1].
