“Biruta Baumane (1922) is one of Latvia’s greatest painters. Her creations have virtually defined Latvian painting for an era lasting well over half a century. They capture the essence of what she has seen, felt, experienced and loved in her life and in her native land. Nothing in her work is contrived; everything is genuine, reflecting her love of painting and above all her love of life.”
The album “Biruta Baumane. Painting” has been published by Gallery “Daugava”. This significant edition (384 pages) contains reproductions of 364 works. Designer of the publication is artist Juris Petraškevičs, compiler and author of the text is art scholar Anda Treija.
