Famous painter and ethnographer Lusik Aguletsi passed away
STEPANAKERT, JULY 14, ARTSAKHPRESS: Lusik Aguletsi was born in 1946 in Agulis town of Goghtan province in Nakhijevan. Her family moved to Yerevan in 1953 where she graduated Panos Terlemezyan Arts College.
She has collected weapons, costumes, decorations, and ancient jars for years. Some of them were brought from her native Agulis and the rest from different corners of Western and Eastern Armenia. Lusik Aguletsi is also well-known due to her quite unusual appearance. The national costumes that she wore for a few decades has been an element of her routine. She is the author of the richly illustrated compendium of Armenian creative works, entitled “Vestiges of the Past.”
Most of her works are kept in museums of Armenia and private collections.
