Ever greater interest is developing worldwide among researchers and the public in the phenomena of early 20th century modern art. The many years of study by art historian Dace Lamberga on the treasures of Latvian avant-garde art has finally resulted in a major volume that gives a wide-ranging and comprehensive picture of the Classical Modernist heritage created by a very active generation of young artists working on the periphery of Europe – in the newly-founded country of Latvia.
