ABSTRACT
The Faculty of History of Vilnius University is situated in the north-western section of Vilnius University campus, building No 7 on Universiteto St, enclosing Mikalojus Daukša courtyard. In 2006, the reconstruction work on the building led to the discovery of the fragments of wall paintings representative of the polychromic wall painting fashion of residential houses in the late 19th and the early 20th centuries. The uncovered wall paintings were finally restored in 2008. Most examples of wall paintings were found on the first and second floors, which, as it is known, were converted in 1803, into Vilnius University staff apartments. The polychromic interior wall paintings in residential houses have not yet received any attention or analysis in scientific - art research publications, even to a lesser degree so, the examples from the 19th century. Therefore architects and other specialists in polychromic painting involved in restoration work are the only ones aware of their existence. The objective of the article is to present the wall paintings restored in the building of the Faculty of History in a context of other examples which resurfaced through the restoration work done on the 19th century paintings in the interiors of residential buildings in Vilnius as important witnesses of the development of Lithuanian art. Hypothesis is made that some of the polychromic paintings might belong to the brush of the painter Pranciškus Smuglevičius, his brother Antanas Smuglevičius or some other painter close to their circle.
