The Age of Symbolism in Latvia

Edited by Dace Lamberga.

Featured image is <I>Beauty</I>, a sketch of a fresco for the Riga Latvian Society by Janis Rozentals, reproduced from<a href="9788836617234.html">The Age of Symbolism in Latvia</a>.Though its best known adherents are Redon and Moreau, Frenchmen, the late-nineteenth-century Symbolist movement in painting found some of its most fascinating expressions in Eastern and North-Eastern Europe. Latvia in this era was radically transformed by an expansion of industry and its increased prosperity naturally impacted its arts, in the flowering of Symbolism and Art Nouveau. Published on the occasion of exhibitions at the City Hall of Brussels and the National Museum of History and Art in Luxembourg, the catalogue illustrates this radiant epoch in Latvia's cultural and artistic past. It features works by some of the major representatives of Latvian Symbolism including Janis Rozentals, Vilhelms Purvitis and Johann Walter, along with their contemporaries, Jekabs Belzens, Aleksandrs Romans and Rudolfs Perle. The book also includes an essay by Dace Lamberga.

FROM THE BOOK
"The many-layered and saturated language of Symbolism and the stylistics of Art Nouveau were reflected in Latvian art in more restrained ways than in Western examples. However, local features created sufficiently original characteristics. To a large degree, the means of expression of both movements voice the moods of the age. They evoke reflections on the purposeful path of our national art on the way to a creative maturity ruled by two basic themes—nature and man. The human image is reflected both as contemporary to the creator and as a hero of mythological stories and folklore. On the other hand, nature, an integral component of human existence, is reflected in the peaceful landscape of Latvia’s fields, forests, rivers and marshes and its restrained northern colorfulness. Symbolism sprang from the cosmopolitan soil in the late 19th century and its essence is linked to universal humanitarian ideas. However, in the world of Latvian art the movement undoubtedly became enriched with specific national features that came from the romantic world of folk tales, legends and folk songs."

Dace Lamberga, excerpted from The Age of Symbolism in Latvia.
