Tallinn's cityscape has long provided inspiration for painters. Throughout the centuries artists from foreign lands have visited or lived in Tallinn, capturing moments in time in their artworks. Most of these paintings are now housed in various museums, for us and future generations to enjoy. Here are a few of my favourites.
Ilus Eesti, beautiful Estonia. My family's homeland. Estonia's countryside and people have an endearing gentleness about them which you fall in love with slowly and imperceptibly. I have nothing but respect and admiration for Estonians' courage and determination to survive despite centuries of repression, tyranny and foreign occupation. This blog aims to promote Estonian news, history and culture and seeks to enlighten readers about everything this unique country has to offer.
