The first foreign overview exhibition of the oeuvre of the outstanding Estonian landscape painter Konrad Mägi (1878–1925).
The exhibition looks at Konrad Mägi’s deeply personal relationship with nature, and its depiction in his work as a hallowed, all-encompassing mystery. Mägi’s powerful visionary landscapes can be seen in more than 60 paintings and drawings from the collections of the Art Museum of Estonia, Tartu Art Museum, and private collections. The exhibition will be accompanied by an Italian- and English-language catalogue issued by the Art Museum of Estonia; in the spring of 2017, a biography of Konrad Mägi by Eero Epner will be published (in Italian and English). The Exhibition is organised by the Art Museum of Estonia, in cooperation with the Embassy of the Republic of Estonia in Italy, Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Estonia and Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Estonia. The event is dedicated to the Estonian Presidency of the Council of the European Union and to the 100th birthday of the Republic of Estonia.
