Ado Lill

1932-2018

Painter and printmaker Ado Lill (1932–2018) graduated from University of Tartu in 1957 as a lawyer, from 1951 to 1952, he was tutored by Allex Kütt at the preparation courses at State Art Institute of the Estonian SSR. Lill was an autodidact but rapidly became an important abstract painter nonetheless. He was also making prints. In 1995, he was awarded with Kristjan Raud Art Prize. Ado Lill’s art is contradictory: his painting style has boldness and roughness, sharp and powerful colors in stark contrasts, nevertheless, Lill’s themes are very gentle. Erotic nude drawing and painting, which Lill was the master of, call for certain softness and delicacy. Lill connected these two paths into a unique synthesis. Ado Lill’s works can be found in many museums’ collections
