The exhibition talks about classical modernism and its emergence in Latvian art, presenting it through the prism of Jāzeps Grosvalds’ evolution into a modern young gentleman, his rather carefree yet creative impulse-driven dandy’s life in Paris and during travels, his transformation into a defender of his homeland and the originator and documenter of nationally important subjects as well as about the significance of the author’s oeuvre for the development of Latvian art in general. The exhibition shows around 400 Jāzeps Grosvalds’ artworks from the collections of Latvian and Swedish museums as well as private collections, among them, more than 150 works from the Värmlands Museum in Karlstad.
