Photo, Print, Drawing Hutsul Women.
About this Item
- Hutsul Women.
- This image is part of an album probably published in about 1920 that contains 20 photographs of scenes in Carpathian Ruthenia, a mountainous region, most of which was part of the Austria-Hungary before World War I, but which became part of the new Czechoslovak state in 1919. Today the largest portion of it forms Zakarpattia Oblast in western Ukraine, with smaller parts in Slovakia and Poland. This image shows a group of Hutsul women with a child. The Hutsuls are an ethnic and cultural group who speak a dialect of Ukrainian, influenced by Polish. They have lived in Ruthenian Carpathia for centuries. The women wear a long linen blouse, drawn in around the neck by embroidered threads, over which are worn two aprons (zapasky), woven in narrow stripes of red wool with silver and gold thread details.
