140pp. NEW Profusely illustrated. Text in English and Latvian. The strangely compelling work of Hilda Vika (1893–1963), whose naïve naturalness blended sense and sensibility, and scenes and figures from both nature and imagination, was a bright phenomenon of Latvian art scene of the 1920s-30s. ( Author) "The artist’s creative output was very broad, from finely executed black and white drawings to subtle, vivid watercolours and uniquely stylised landscapes, portraits and nudes. She also wrote poems, stories and novels, which she personally illustrated as well. Hilda Vika’s art is still controversial, admired and revered by some, reviled by detractors, while others try to "decode" it, seeking parallels between the art of Europe and Latvia of her time."
