In collaboration with Gotlands Konst Museum, an exhibition catalogue has been created for a collection of works by the pioneering Latvian artist and art researcher Voldemārs Matvejs, known as the “Visby Cycle” – seven paintings of landscapes and sculptures inspired by a visit to Visby. This was a decisive moment in the artists’ life, after which he turned to art theory, becoming the author of the first Russian avant-garde artists’ manifesto, the “Russian Secession”, and promoting the traditions of Oriental culture.
