Potocki Palace is a striking example of the architecture of mature Historicism and one of the most interesting architectural monuments in Lviv. The palace is a prototype of the so-called “Entire cour et jardin” residences of King Louis XIV, which is defined as “Baroque Classicism” when precise planning is combined with the exterior wealth of forms. In plan, it has a rectangular shape with minor lateral projections.
The halls on the first floor recreate the palace interiors. On the second floor there is one of the richest collections of European art in Ukraine, which includes such works as “Coral and Pearl Fishing” by Jacopo Zucchi, “Payment” by Georges de La Tour, “Portrait of a Young Patrician” by Sofonisba Anguissola, “Allegory of Divine Mercy” by an unknown German artist of the seventeenth century, “Visitation” by Jan van Scorel, as well as sketches of monumental paintings by Paul Troger, Joseph Winterhalter, Franz Anton Maulbertsch and others.
