Over 150 Paintings Across The Map of Estonia
Andres Eilart and Aavo Kokk have compiled a book, the likes of which has not been published in Estonia before. It is, at the same time, both a comprehensive art book, as well as an interesting nature-loving sightseer’s guide to Estonia. The book contains 150 pleasantly casual introductions to noteworthy places in Estonia. They deal with landscapes and people, with history and legends. Every informative text is accompanied by a picture, or even several, just as the artists have seen the location under discussion.
Estonia’s best-known artist are represented here, but, even a few world-famous artists from abroad. Here, between these covers, can be found old favourites, as well as new, totally unexpected, suprises. All the works of art have been placed, on a map of Estonia, where the artist stood when they were depicting that particular landscape. In many cases, it has been possible to do this with almost pin-point accuracy. This book takes the reader on a unique tour of Estonia’s water-holes, fields, and forests. As well as provides a glimpse into Estonian art collections and the nation’s cultural history.
In the process of compiling this book, Andres and Aavo had the opportunity of looking at thousands of works of art in museums and private collections. And thus, made interesting discoveries that will fascinate both art admirers and nature lovers.
