Artworks from private collections
1960’s, 70’s, 80’s painting — an excursion into the past and not so distant past.
For some viewers, the exhibition will provide a chance to look back to their youth and possibly evoke a nostalgia for the art of those years. This art is rarely seen at exhibition in Riga and cannot be found in museum expositions at all. For gallery visitors born of that era, this exhibition could be a revelation. That was a time when many our popular and recognized artists were starting out as “the young and promising” as also of the already established artists. The joint exhibition features works by Rūdolfs Pinnis, Biruta Baumane, Laimdotis Mūrnieks, Herberts Siliņš, Džemma Skulme, Edvards Grūbe, Imants Vecozols, Lija Būmane, Biruta Delle, Juris Baklāns and others. These celebrities are mentioned here to tempt you to the gallery in December and January. This exhibition is a New Year’s gift to those who love and appreciate art.
