Krychevsky, Mykola [Кричевський, Микола; Kryčevs’kyj], b 24 November 1898 in Kharkiv, d 11 September 1961 in Paris. Impressionist painter; son of Vasyl H. Krychevsky and brother of Vasyl V. Krychevsky. After studying art with his father, and with Yosyp Bokshai in Uzhhorod, he graduated from the School of Industrial Design in Prague. In 1929 he moved to Paris. Krychevsky is best known for his watercolors: his scenes of Paris (such as On the Seine, 1934) and Venice (such as Venice, 1949) earned him international acclaim. His work was exhibited at the Salon des Indépendents in Paris, and in various cities of Western Europe and North America. Krychevsky also designed stage sets for the Ruthenian Theater of the Prosvita Society (1921–3) and Oleksander Zaharov's company (1921–5) in Uzhhorod, and the Théatre des Arts (1939) and the Théatre Hébertot (1942) in Paris.
