The series „Classics of Latvian Art” presents a book about one of the most prominent and creatively independent landscapists of the last century Konrāds Ubāns (1893–1981).
Restrained and gentle in character, Konrāds Ubāns was actually a
fanatically zealous artist, who devoted the whole of his long life to plein-air painting and would spend long hours at the easel, from early morning until the last rays of the evening sun.
He would become completely absorbed in the richness of the natural setting, as reflected in the exquisite colour nuances of his lyrical paintings.
The series „Classics of Latvian Art” includes books of medium size, offering an easily perceptible information about Latvian classical artists and their works. The series is intended as bilingual (Latvian/English), richly illustrated publications. An attractive supplement at the end of each book is a timeline where the life of Latvian artists can be viewed within the context of world events, revealing connections, parallels or just interesting coincidences.
