Wild Souls; Symbolism in the Baltic States at the Orsay Museum

Wild Souls; Symbolism in the Baltic States at the Orsay Museum

There’s nothing like a new exhibition at the Orsay to take you on a trip. A trip in time as well as in space, designed to delight. And this is precisely the purpose of the new exhibition entitled Wild Souls; Symbolism in the Baltic States, which showcases an artistic movement linked to the cultural world of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania on the occasion of the centenary of their independence shortly after the end of the First World War. This anniversary will be celebrated throughout Europe until 2021 and this exhibition is a part of that celebration, showing many works that are being seen outside of their respective countries for the first time. Via the interplay of influences and resistance to influence, using elements of popular culture, folklore and local legends, as well as the singularity of their nations’ landscapes, these artists forged a language specific to their world, resulting in an art of real originality. Whether through painting, sculpture or graphic arts, the emancipation of consciousness that these works convey is inseparable from the independence of the nations from which they originated, giving them a unique power.
