In this highly illustrated volume, Serge Fauchereau presents the modern art scene of the Baltic countries, showing how artists from Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia created their own art movement rooted in Baltic life. By the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, Baltic artists and writers were starting to reclaim and promote their artistic heritage as radically distinct from that of the invading nations, with pioneers such as M. K. Ciurlionis and Vilhelms Purvitis demonstrating rare originality in their work.
Art of the Baltic States is organized into three main chapters, documenting the history of art in each country. Enriched with illustrations from important museum collections, Fauchereau covers key art movements as well as their rich and complex historical background, from time under the Czars and the German crown to the invasion by the Soviet Union and beyond.
