Vilhelms Purvītis

Eduards Kļaviņš

The series „Classics of Latvian Art” presents a book about Vilhelms Purvītis (1872–1945), one of the central figures of the Latvian visual art in the first half of the 20th century.

The canonical image he created of the northern landscape, full of neoromantic atmosphere, is deeply rooted as a poetic archetype in the consciousness of a very broad section of the Latvian public. (..) We may even say the the neoromantic image of the Latvian landscape, created by Purvītis, has become a mark of national identity.

The series „Classics of Latvian Art” includes books of medium size, offering an easily perceptible information about Latvian classical artists and their works. Similar to the „STUDIJA Library” the series „Classics of Latvian Art” 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.
