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.
Paintings from the 16th–18th century. Dutch, German, Italian and Russian masters
Western European and Russian applied art and sculpture from the 18th–20th century
The Kadriorg palace and park were founded by the Russian tsar Peter I. The well-preserved main hall is one of the best examples of Baroque architecture not only in Estonia but also in the whole Northern Europe. The main exposition of the collection of the Kadriorg Art Museum (Western European and Russian art from 16th–20th century) is valuable and quite remarkable. In addition, temporary exhibitions, concerts, and theatre performances take place.
