Andris Eglītis. Purvitis Prize 2013

The Purvītis Prize is awarded every two years to an artist or group of artists who represent Latvian art with an outstanding closely tied to the processes of the time in which there is a link to contemporary life, spiritual ideals and absolute values and which has been rated the highest by experts and a specially formed panel of judges.
Purvītis Prize 2013 winner is Andris Eglītis. The prize is named after the Old Master of Latvian painting Vilhelms Purvītis (1872–1945). He was an outstanding artist and art professor who won critical acclaim both at home and internationally. Therefore the prize will become a kind of synthesis of established, classical values and the seemingly momentary, contemporary art processes. The founding of the Purvītis Prize raises hope that the new tradition of supporting artists who have demonstrated considerable stylistic individuality and talent and whose ideas and projects make our life richer and brighter, will take root in Latvian cultural life.
