Eight essays examine the links between Latvian art of the period and concurrent developments in Berlin, Paris and Moscow; discuss such individual figures as Karlis Padegs and Romans Suta; and describe the Social Realist, Expressionist, Constructivist and indigenous styles reflected in the exhibited works.
