Wild Souls. Symbolism in the Art of the Baltic States

Add to Favourites Your favourite!

Curated by Rodolphe Rapetti, an outstanding French researcher, the international exhibition reveals the specific features of early 20th-century Baltic Symbolism. The exhibition was initially on display at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris. 
The high-level exhibition is the result of cooperation between the three Baltic states. Almost 150 works by notable artists from the Baltic countries dating from the late 19th century to the 1930s are included in the exhibition. On display are works by Janis Rozentāls, Vilhelms Purvītis, Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis, Kristjan Raud, Nikolai Triik, Konrad Mägi, Oskar Kallis and many other great names in Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian art from the collections of four Baltic museums: The Latvian National Museum of Art, Art Museum of Estonia, Lithuanian Art Museum and M. K. Čiurlionis National Museum of Art.
The exhibition reveals the specific features of early 20th-century Baltic Symbolism. The young, local artists of the time set out to discover the contemporary art movements in Europe, but also aspired to help create their own national identities. The three main themes of the exhibition – Myths and Legends, Soul, and Nature – express the artists’ interest in romantic narratives, people’s individual inner worlds and the mystery of nature. 
From June to September 2018, ‘Wild Souls. Symbolism in the Art of the Baltic States’ was on display at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris as part of the centenary celebrations of the Republic of Estonia.
Curators: Rodolphe Rapetti and Liis Pählapuu.
