  • This book is an aspiration to reconstruct the twentieth century art of Vilnius, to cast a new light on its character and functioning in the society of that time. It is not easy to do that because several nations have different visions and auras about the city's past. For Lithuanians it is the symbol of their self-dependence, the city of grand dukes, lost and dreamed capital; for Poles it is the cradle of one of their nicest cultural epoch's, Romanticism; for Jews it is Lithuanian Jerusalem. The phenomena of the art of Vilnius are analyzed in the context of the art of Europe of that time, close relations with the processes of the Western art are accentuated, the appearance of new trends, Modernism, Aestheticism and Symbolism and first artistic steps of the Avant-garde. The art of that time is presented as dynamic heritage, the period of the openness to various cultural values. This monograph is based on abundant material which was never published before, photographs and the reproductions of the works of art.
