Monograph about Niklāvs Strunke

The monograph on the artist Niklāvs Strunke (1894–1966) summarizes for the first time his extensive heritage – painting, book art, set design, various branches of decorative, applied art and design.

The book includes an album of reproductions of works and documentary photographs, providing an overview of the artist and his work. This is followed by essays appraising the artistic fields in which Niklāvs Strunke worked – art historian Aija Brasliņa tirelessly documented Strunke’s biography and artistic contacts; artist Valdis Villerušs scrupulously studied the world of books and graphics; Latvian theatre historian Edīte Tišheizere, representing the international fraternity of avant-garde theatre researchers; art historian Ilze Martinsone revealed the unexpectedly broad scope of Strunke’s applied art.
