17.11.2020 – From the treasury of the Estonian Art Museum

The piece titled “River Seine” (1924) is a depiction of the soul and essence of Paris in the 1920s by one of Estonia’s most famous avant garde artists, Ado Vabbe (1892-1961). Feeling the urban environment in a futuristic key, Vabbe captured the changing atmosphere and continuous life rhythm of a metropolis using a fragmented colour surface. Such an approach could be considered rather novel for Estonian art at the time. Thus, as he kept up with artistic innovators in Europe, Vabbe could be considered the first modernist artist in the Estonian context.
