Abstract


Purpose of research. The paper analyzes the main artworks of the New York period A. Manevich, which absorbed the principles of Cezanne oeuvre. The research method is based on the application of art-study, biographical and comparative approaches. Application of the interdisciplinary methodology allowed us to reveal existing analogies between the specifics of the painting techniques of A. Manevich 1921-1927 and the formal approaches of P. Cezanne, which dated back to 1880-1890s. The scientific novelty is that the presence of Cezanneism in A. Manevich's practice is considered for the first time in the art history of Ukraine. Conclusions Departure of A. Manevich from his previous impressionistic experience, which intensified after the 1921 emigration to the United States, is an evolutionary-logical process. The development of A. Manevich's creative personality is coherent with the processes of worldview revaluations that took place in the fine art of European modernism during the 1880-1910s. The name of A. Manevich is inextricably linked with the reformist transformations of the Ukrainian Art, which, by overcoming the stereotypes of local provincialism, led the Ukrainian school to a broad international arena
