Museum devoted to the artists Romans Suta and Aleksandra Beļcova

Author: Anothertravelguide.com0 COMMENTS

This apartment museum was once the home of the legendary Latvian painters Romans Suta and Aleksandra Beļcova, as well as their daughter, art historian Tatjana Suta.

During the 1920s and 1930s, Suta and his equally talented wife, the Russian-born Beļcova, hosted lively gatherings of Latvia's artists and intelligentsia. At the time, the popular couple were central figures in the Riga Artists' Group (Rīgas mākslinieku grupa) and embodied the glamour and creativity of Latvia's pre-war art scene.

Some fine examples of the stylish ceramics that the two artists designed - and that was expertly crafted in the now defunct but once prestigious Baltars workshop - can also be seen and touched in the museum.

Suta's and Beļcova's apartment was bequeathed to the Latvian National Museum of Art, of which it is now a branch, by their daughter Tatjana Suta, who died in 2004.
