The Kadriorg palace and park ensemble celebrates its 300th anniversary with an exhibition focusing on people: rulers, holiday-makers, authors, painters and men about town. The objects on display – historical costumes, works of art, documents and much more – come from the State Hermitage Museum, Alexandre Vassiliev Foundation and several museums in Estonia and Latvia.
Aivazovsky. In Pursuit of the Ideal
The centrepiece of the exhibition is a rare painting by Ivan Aivazovsky from the collection of the Art Museum of Estonia. The newly-restored work of art has been placed amongst seascapes from Russian, Latvian and Estonian collections, which together give an overview of the oeuvre of Russia’s best-known marine painter.
