ENFrom 21st of November 2013 to 13th of April 2014 exhibition “The Wonderful Land. Artists in East Prussia. 19th and the First Half of the 20th Century Paintings and Graphic Art from the Collection of Aleksandr Popov” was displayed at the Vilnius Picture Gallery. Twice as large, complemented by paintings and graphic artworks it was transferred to the LAM’s Pranas Domšaitis Gallery in Klaipėda and opened on 8th of May 2014. Exhibition “The Wonderful Land. Artists in East Prussia. 19th and the First Half of the 20th Century Paintings and Graphic Art from the Collection of Aleksandr Popov” will be on display here until 8th of May 2016. The Society of East Prussia Art Lovers “Nidden” was founded in 2009 in Klaipėda by a small affinity group of ethnography and history lovers. The aim of “Nidden” is to search, collect and promote paintings from East Prussia that picturesquely portray the nature, history and inhabitants of this region. Aleksandr Popov, former sea captain, today a businessman, art patron, and the chair of the Society, has been collecting paintings related to East Prussia for almost a decade. To date his collection has nearly 1 000 works of fine art and graphic art by almost 300 painters. The artworks of Aleksandr Popov’s collection were created in the 19th century and in the first half of the 20th century, during the blossoming of fine art in East Prussia, when the region was a centre of attraction for many painters.The exhibition in the Pranas Domšaitis Gallery represents 142 painters with 276 artworks. Oil, tempera, aquarelle, pastel paintings, drawings, prints of various graphic techniques, and reproductive graphics represent the most significant phenomenon of art history in East Prussia – the Konigsberg Art Academy and Nida artist’s colony, as well as the works of painters that were born, permanently lived or occasionally visited this region. The exhibition is mainly composed of landscapes, accompanied by some figurative compositions, still-lifes and portraits. The scale of the exhibition’s painting styles is very wide: from academic art, romanticism, realism, late impressionism, to expressionism and modern objectivism. It is symbolic that the exhibition is held in the Gallery, which permanent exhibition is dedicated to the works of Pranas Domšaitis (1880–1965), Lithuanian expressionist painter originating from Prussia. Therefore, this exhibition helps to better understand origins and historic context of Pranas Domšaitis’ creativity. During the World War II artworks of many painters, who lived and worked in East Prussia were lost. However, this situation in art history took an unexpected turn. Part of exhibition’s artworks was created in the second half of the 20th century. It reveals a phenomenon of East Prussian fine arts post-1945: unable to return to beloved places, for almost 20 years after the war ended painters created paintings by memory, based on impressions deep in the mind.
