611.t1.jpg Interview with Jaanus Vaiksoo and Jüri Mildeberg

The presentation of Jaanus Vaiksoo’s new book Loode-Eesti Regionaalhaigla Elulood and the exhibition of Jüri Mildeberg’s witty illustrations took place on Tuesday, 7 August 2018, in Haus Gallery. The exhibition will remain open until 8 September, with it also being possible to review and purchase the book from the gallery.

The collection of poetry and prose published to date by writer and literary historian Jaanus Vaiksoo is quite impressive in terms of the volume. Book illustrator and painter Jüri Mildeberg has been delighting us with his creations for more than 20 years. His work is enriching homes in Estonia and elsewhere around the world. With the help of Terje Metsavas, Haus Gallery is taking a look into the stories behind the fresh creation from and cooperation between two friends.

599.t1.jpg Kiwa's graphics at Maakri Quarter

Beginning on 28 May, a series of graphic prints by Kiwa entitled “spiral of void” will be on display at the newly-built lobby in the Maakri Quarter, organised in cooperation with Haus Gallery. The series has an almost therapeutic effect in the office environment, liberating one from the gruelling burden of emotions and balancing the perpetual clockwork of consciousness. Just like the Maakri Quarter preserves and highlights historical architecture, this series pays homage to the concrete poetry of one of the promoters of the local avant-garde, Raul Meel.

591.t1.jpg Art fragments of spring auction: Ferdi Sannamees

Dear Art Lover,

Ceramic sculpture has its own rightful place among the paintings and graphics auctioned off this spring at Haus Gallery. This is to introduce sculptor Ferdi Sannamees and his work “Crying woman” (1943).

Ferdi Sannamees (1895–1963) was born in Otepää Parish. He studied painting at the Konrad Mägi studio in Tartu in 1918–19 and painting and graphic art at the art school Pallas in 1919–24. After that he studied sculpture with A. Starkopf and V. Mellik and later furthered his education in Dresden and Paris. In the then small community of sculptors, Sannamees soon took the leading role, which he kept until the end of his life.

589.t1.jpg Art fragments of spring auction: Aino Bach

Dear Art Lover!

We have now moved on from painting to printmaking in presenting the works that will be featured in the auction.

Aino Bach (1901 – 1980) was among the most beloved Estonian female printmakers, who studied under both Nikolai Triik and Ado Vabbe. She was among the most talented creators of Pallas in the area of intaglio printing, but also skilled in monotype, already achieving success before the Second World War. During the war she lived with the artist collective of Yaroslavl, Russia, and after the war in Tartu and Tallinn. Her favourite topics were workers and intelligentsia and contemplative female types, who represented either a trade or were observable as an independent idea of something poetic, even “utopian poetic”, if going by the legendary art critic Boris Bernstein.

588.t1.jpg Art fragments of spring auction: Lepo Mikko

Dear Art Lover!

We will continue to introduce renowned artists during the auction week. This time, Lepo Mikko and his oil painting “Still life with a basket” are under the microscope.

Lepo Mikko (1911–1978) graduated from the Higher Art School in 1939, being among the most gifted students of the school. There are not many artists in Estonian art history that survived radical changes in political regimes, reflecting each change sensitively in his creations.

586.t1.jpg Art fragments of spring auction: Aleksander Kulkoff

Dear Art Lover!

On the eve of Haus Gallery’s Spring Auction, we are continuing with our series of stories about paintings, with our subject this time being Aleksander Kulkoff.

Aleksander Kulkoff (1899-1970) was one of the most intriguing Russian painters to have lived in Estonia. He was born in Moscow, into the family of a banker, and received his education there at the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture. Kulkoff is associated with art life in Estonia because, following his service in the Finnish Army, he settled in Estonia in 1918.

585.t1.jpg Art fragments of spring auction: Johannes Võerahansu

Dear Art Lover!

In honour of the arrival of our Spring Auction we are discussing Johannes Võerahansu as a part of our continuing series of art fragments.

Johannes Võerahansu’s (1902-1980) art education began at Ants Laikmaa’s studio school, but was interrupted due to financial reasons, when the artist began to work at his father’s home in agriculture and construction, grinding flour in the rented mill, painting decorations in the theatre and pouring forms in a ceramics factory. Võerahansu hadn’t put down his paint brush for good though, he returned to school a dozen years later, this time under the instruction of Ado Vabbe at Pallas.

575.t1.jpg Haus Gallery's spring auction on 27th of April

Haus Gallery’s auction exhibition of classic pieces of traditional art is open at the Gallery, at Uus tn 17, in Tallinn, every business day from 10.00 to 18.00, and on Saturdays from 11.00 to 16.00.

While last year’s auction helped Amandus Adamson’s work Champion which had been missing for more than 100 years find a new home, then this year we have unearthed the work Potato Planters, by Andrus Johani. The location of the painting dating back to 1939 was unknown to art experts and the wider public until now. Potato Planters is among works of art holding both cultural-historical and museum value, and its resurfacing is an extraordinary event for experts and collectors alike.

566.t1.jpg Juhan Püttsepp. Memorial exhibition

A memorial exhibition dedicated to Juhan Püttsepp, one of the first students of the Pallas school, is set to open at Haus Gallery on Tuesday 27 March. Püttsepp began teaching art at the same time as he was studying it himself, making a name for himself as a respected teacher in the decades that followed. He gained wider fame as an artist thanks to his landscapes and figural compositions, which are valued for their warm colouring and expressiveness – and which can be admired in all their glory in this exhibition.
