The Source of Youth. Aija Jurjāne

"On Aija's table, there was her daughter Ieva's painted porcelain vase – her own vases that she painted created in Zvārtava porcelain symposium had already been given away. Aija's paintings were stored in a mid-floor kind of shelf/gallery where one could climb up on using Swedish gymnastics wall, and there had never been much, because compositions for the thematic or seasonal exhibitions of Soviet time had arrived as purchases in the stocks of the Latvian National Museum of Art and the Latvian Museum of Artists' Union, while the portraits Aija gave to those who appeared in them. Aija liked to give." (Anita Vanaga)
