There was a school of monumental painting in Ukraine in 20s - 30s. They were called "Boichukisty" by the name of their teacher Mykhailo Boichuk: Vasyl? Sedler, Ivan Padalka, Sophia Nemityn?ska-Boichuk, Maria Pryimak, Antonina Ivanova, and Oksana Pavlenko. However, Stalin's regime did not like their works. The school was liquidated, works and outlines were destroyed, and its leaders were shot up. There are only few works from their huge heritage, which were saved accidentally.
