Sigrid Uiga "Metsatöölised"

The painting career of Sigrid Uiga started in 1942 in Tallinn School of Figurative and Applied Arts, soon continuing in “Pallas” and after re-structuring of the school in Tartu State Art Institute. After the war Uiga continued her studies in Tallinn, graduating from the ESAI in 1951. The figural compositions from the following decade brought Uiga fame and recognition that soon gave her the possibility to take up work as a teacher of painting.
“Metsatöölised” reflects the best known part of the creation of Sigrid Uiga. Having been made in the 1960ies, the atmosphere reflects the sense of freedom that was characteristic to the whole decade. The work theme that had been obligatory a couple of years earlier, has here become a pretext for painting people. Instead of glorifying with pathos, we see a free, direct and sincere approach, where of importance is solving of painting-related problems and depiction of unconcealed optimism.
