The catalogue presents the art of Biruta Baumane – a vivid, unique Latvian painter of the second half of the 20th century, a major figural artist, creator of an intense emotional world. Emphasised are her works from the final decade of the century, though also looking back on the past. The reproductions are augmented with images that are replete with reminders of the context of her time and her contemporaries.
