New exhibition: The Burning Man – Peeter Mudist

This exhibition is open in the Estonian National Museum gallery from 1 October 2022-15 January 2023.
The ‘Burning Man – Peeter Mudist’ exhibition marks what would have been the unique Estonian artist’s 80th birthday. While his paintings are known to many, his sculptures are less well known, despite being equally impressive. The exhibition showcases almost 60 paintings and 20 sculptures. The works, which depict people of importance to the artist, were primarily sourced from the collections of Estonia’s two biggest art museums and the most extensive private collection of Mudist’s paintings. The accompanying texts were penned by Mudist himself.

New exhibition. Universe of the Farmyard: Creators of Southern Estonia
