The artistic education of Karl Burman junior gives us several instructions for the interpretation of the present work. Burman received his initial knowledge from his father and uncle, Karl Burman senior and Paul Burman, whose joint aspects in creation it is quite complicated to deduct. The mathematical thinking of the first and the unstoppable sense of colours and inspirational side of the other person take us directly to the creative activity of Burman junior. Let’s also add here his studies of architecture and architecture-related activity and education of the Art Institute of Moscow and we can summarise the basic points of “Raekoja plats”. As the creator of skilful cityscapes, the current work still stands apart from the creation by Burman. A large-sized work with elaborated details, where on the foreground can be detected the subtle variety of colour variations. In addition can be clearly seen the artist’s skill to paint light and even rain (!), constituting so the best stylistic example of Burman’s creation. As an architect, the author is from one side interested in organising of the room, in exact observation of different buildings.From another side, here can be found Burman-style untamable sense of colour and light, classical “painting-related” values, which leave in shadow all possible mathematics. But the accomplishing time of the work – a taxi stop with “Pobedas” and the flag of the ESSR attached to the Town Hall, not talking of the fashion of ladies’ clothes or re-construction of buildings – give to “Raekoja plats” in addition to everything also the undoubted value of a historical document.
