All three artists share a distinctive approach to painting and self-representation that is uncharacteristic of their time, marking them as strong personalities in the art milieu of the last decades of the Soviet era. The exhibition is part of the Baltic Art History Study initiated by the KUMU Art Museum, which aims to broaden the vision and create a dialogue between the national art heritage of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.
