Dramaturgy o landscape. Act III. Urban Landscape

21.09.2022 - 22.10.2022

The year 2022 marks the 150th birhday of our outstanding painter Vilhelms Purvītis. The National Art Museum has staged the exhibition „Purvītis”, but the gallery Daugava is celebrating this jubilee year with the exhibition cycle  Dramaturgy of Landscape inviting the viewers to enjoy the interpretation of nature in contemporary painting. Artists are still painting the melting snow, birch groves, meadows and river bays. Nature has been a source of inspiration for creators of poems, music and art throughout the ages. Purvītis painted not only the Latvian landscape; his canvases also glorify  the urban landscape of Riga, Rēvele, Rēzekne, Dubulti and Majori. It incited us to display the urban landscapes of contemporary painters in whose works city is the unity of structured features.The display includes the panorama of Riga, Valdemara street, the roofs of Old Riga, Pārdaugava, Ķīpsala, centre and suburbs of Riga and towns of Latvia. Several canvases offer townscapes of Western Europe, certainly of the artists’ beloved city of Venice as well. Thus, urban landscape with its unique charm, colour scheme, light and shade in the paintings of  Andris Eglītis, Daiga Krūze, Aleksejs Naumovs, Maija Tabaka, Kaspars Zariņš, Vija Zariņa Jānis Purcens, Ivars Heinrihsons, Imants Vecozols, Alberts Pauliņš and Biruta Baumane. This year is Biruta Baumane’s centenary. At present her artworks are on display in the Latvian National Art Museum. In 2010 the gallery Daugava published the album of her paintings. Then she told us about her youth and study years, revealing an interesting fact that she had studied painting under Vilhelms Purvītis. The exhibition in the gallery Daugava is from 21.09 to 22.10.2022
