The City of Light. Estonian Artists in European Metropolises

The exhibition pays tribute to the great passion for creating and travelling, which characterised those Estonian artists of the first half of the 20th century who went to Europe to look for inspiration. Through their works, the viewer can experience the lure of big city lights and the buzz of cafes, witness the milieu of slums, and partake in encounters with peculiar characters.
