Herman Talvik "On the Way"

A visual and somewhat mysterious image from Herman Talvik’s Swedish period, probably referring to the Estonian war refugees on the lower left. Herman Talvik is one of the few artists who has been able to visualise in almost abstract paintings the spiritual and mental experience of World War II from a human point of view, perhaps the key to his paintings and graphic art is the keyword ‘soul’. A painter and graphic artist with a very different artistic background (he studied not at Pallas in Tartu, but at the Ateneum in Helsinki), Herman Talvik began to exhibit in the 1930s and attracted the attention of authoritative art scholars and artists with his originality and talent.
