In the end of the 18th c., Lviv was one of Europe's leading centres of late Baroque/Rococo sculpture. To see the masterpieces by Johann Georg Pinsel and other local artists just go to former Franciscan church which hosts exhibition of mesmerizing sculptures in their Baroque but almost cubistic forms.

I have seen the Pinzel work both here, once in Kivy and in Paris. It continues amaze where ever. As one walks around L'viv one sees other works either from Pinzel or his school. Look in the museum for the carved foot in the ceiling fresco.

I studied about the mysterious master Pinsel at uni- nobody knows where he came from, but he created real etherical masterpieces of rococo using revolutionary techniques. These expressive sculptures which survived the dark communistic ages are on show in a former church. This is a fraction of what it used to be but what survived will take your breath away.... More

It is the museum of the sculptures made of wood. You will never see something like that in the place anywhere else. Thhese sculptures are magnetic.

I came here on a rainy afternoon with my husband, brother and grandma while visiting my family in Lviv. This museum is rather small and in the space of what used to be an old monastery. If you have a half hour to kill and you're looking for something to see in the art realm, this is definitely a must... More

I have not seen anything like that before. Wooden sculptures seem to look much more realistic than famous statues of Madame Tussot.

I am astonished by beauty and unusualness of this art. I saw some wood statues before but they were never such close to life. I can't imagine how this master made it but what I saw was great!
