There were two biggest art criticism researches in Kyiv and Kharkiv in Soviet Ukraine. They were formed in pre-revolutionary times. In Kharkiv art criticism investigations were developed by the followers of F. Shmidt. Dmytro Hordieiev was one of them. He belonged to a generation of young Ukrainian art critics, such as F. Ernst in Kyiv, S. Taranushenko, O. Nikolska and others in Kharkiv. After F. Shmidt leaving to Leningrad, D. Hordieiev often coordinated Kharkiv scientists’ interaction with VUAN in Kyiv. Although he lived most of the time in Tbilisi, D. Hordieiev ruled Kharkiv section of Kiev scientifi c research department of art criticism in 1926–1930s. He used these life’s circumstances for the development of Ukrainian science. His living in Georgia prompted oriental studies and studies about Caucasus in Ukraine.
