Kalju Nagel’s “Kaukaasia vaade” was an impression painting of a resort of a friendly republic, characteristic to the 1950ies. Views of the Crimea and Caucasus were frequent in the Estonian art at that period, replacing Capri, Paris and Rome of the first half of the century. Even though the locations have changed, the reasons why artists are trying to paint down their impressions have not changed. Light, falling from a slightly different angle or the unexpected splash of pink in the middle of the landscape is absolutely sufficient for creating the artist’s interest. Most probably we should also think of Olev Subbi, who after his trips to paint mountains calls them “The complex of a Nordic person” and also the necessity to paint in existentialist manner – so that “the plain that can be seen through the window ends with mountains”.
