    Kateryna Bilokur is a highly original Ukrainian folk artist. Her life was not easy.
    She was born in 1900. The first works of Bilokur (1920-1930s) were amateurish.
    They were the portraits of her relatives and villagers made with charcoal and
    home-made vegetable paints.
    The second half of the 1930s was an important period in her creative work.
    Bilokur's artworks were first displayed at the Poltava Regional Exhibition in 1940, and then
    at the national exhibition in Kyiv.
    In one of her letters Kateryna Bilokur wrote: "I paint only flowers. How can I not paint them if
    they are so beautiful!"
    The book shows 70 color reproductions of the most famous paintings.
    As the book is pretty old, the quality of the photographs is low.
    Also, the paper quality is low, it is of yellowish color.
