Traces of the Gods. Paintings by the Japanese Artist Torii Rei
The artist Torii Rei (1952) employs classic Japanese painting techniques and his works of art deal with the rich mythological heritage of Japan. The background of nature worship allows us to draw several parallels between pre-Buddhist Japan and the distant past of Estonia.
Efraim Allsalu. The Joy and Poetry of Life in Tough Times
Efraim Allsalu (1929–2006) established himself in the Estonian art scene of the 1960s and 70s with his abundant works of art and original means of expression. The exhibition displays contemporary interpretations of the topic of labour, as well as portraits and still lifes.
A Modern Woman
The exhibition focuses on the subject of the modern woman – the woman who primarily dedicates herself to professional self-fulfilment – in Estonian art at the end of the 19th century and in the first half of the 20th century.
