Exhibition

The most valuable parts of a museum are its collections. For the first time, this exhibition will present the collection of European and Russian sculptures of the Art Museum of Estonia as a whole. Copies of renowned ancient sculptures from Estonian manor houses, works by famous 19th-century masters and Soviet socialist realist sculptors form separate groups inside the exhibition, and through them it is possible to evaluate the technical mastery of each work and to understand its value by placing it into the context of the time of its creation. Many of the works are on display for the first time in the museum. The exhibition is also a preparation for the construction of the open storage for sculpture collection of the Kadriorg Art Museum, which will be opened to visitors in 2022. One of the rooms will contain a conservation workshop, where visitors can observe sculptures in poor condition being cleaned and restored by conservators.

Curators: Maria Väinsar and Tiina-Mall Kreem (guest curator).
