The luminescence and transient absorption of PbWO_{4} crystals were studied. The electron beam (10 ns, E≈270 keV) was used as excitation source. The kinetics of luminescence is complicated - the prompt rise of luminescence intensity is followed by a slow (τ_{r}≈100 ns) rise. The luminescence decay at 80 K is nearly exponential with τ_{d}≈4.0- 4.5 μs. The decay kinetics of transient absorption at 3.5 eV can be described roughly by two exponents with time constants τ_{1}≈100 ns and τ_{2}≈4.0 μs. A common process responsible for absorption relaxation and luminescence rise is suggested. The luminescence center excitation occurs during recombination process via Pb^{2+} excited state formation and subsequent energy transfer to WO_{4}^{2-} group.
