Graphic sources on the history of the Northern Black Sea region in archival collections

The purpose of the publication is to study the structure of the complex of visual sources, preserved in archival institutions, illuminate the history of funding, defining their author’s and quantitative representation. On the basis of entire heuristics, iconographic and attribution methods, a complex of graphic sources on the history of the Northern Black Sea region of the last third of the XVIIIth — the middle of the nineteenth century was discovered. It was found out that the most complete collection of works on the history of the Northern Black Sea region of the last third of the 18th — the middle of the nineteenth century are funded in such archives as the National Library of France and the St. Petersburg Branch of the Archive of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The collections in archival units of the Harvard and Warsaw University libraries, the State Hermitage and the State Archives of the Russian Federation contain less collection. In archival institutions the works of authorship of H. Munts, F. Dubois de Montpeure, Z. Volkonsky, S. Belichev are most preserved. The works of K. Bosso, A. Afanasyev, O. Di Paldo, military engineers, etc. are presented separately. It is noted that graphic sources have a low level of expression and aesthetic settings. Instead, they are overwhelmingly characterized by the desire to schematize compared to similar graphic sources stored in museums. The general iconographic analysis gives an opportunity to talk about the availability of informative potential of these graphic sources for the study the key elements of the everyday life of the population of Nadporozhzhia, the mountainous Crimea and Odessa.
