Dannebrog – The Flag That Fell from the Sky: The Golden Age of Danish Art
A broad selection of the best art from the Danish Golden Age, including the most important masterpieces, will be exhibited for the first time in Estonia. The exhibition is part of the celebration of the 800th anniversary of the Danish national flag. Curator: Henrik Holm (National Gallery of Denmark).
In cooperation with the National Gallery of Denmark, the Danish Cultural Institute and the Danish Embassy in Estonia.
In the Beginning There Were … Köler and Weizenberg
The exhibition that launches the centennial of the Art Museum of Estonia gives us a new angle on the oeuvres of the first two professional Estonian artists. Köler’s paintings and Weizenberg’s sculptures are the starting point of Estonian art; the story of their exposition reflects the more significant developments in the history of the Art Museum of Estonia.
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.
