Exhibition April 10 − July 15, 2018
Back in 1918, right after the First world war, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania gained independence. In 2018 to celebrate the centenary of this event in French The Museum d'orsay will be held exhibition dedicated to the Baltic symbolism from 1890 to 1920-ies.

The exhibition is organized to the musée d'orsay in collaboration with the national muzeeyi of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. 150 different works of art, from painting to lithography, from drawings to sculptures – will introduce viewers to the "Golden age" of Baltic art.

The main purpose of the exhibition is to showcase the work of Baltic artists and to prove that those in the skill did not lag behind the leading European painters of the time. And the symbolism so common in Europe, was typical for the Baltic countries. It was reflected in the works of many artists of Lithuania (for example, Mikalojus Konstantinas čiurlionis, the only one represented in the exhibition, whose works have been exhibited outside his homeland), Latvia (Janis Rosenthal), Estonia (Kristjan Raud).

The exhibition runs from 10 April until 15 July 2018.
