EESTI KUNSTNIKUD 1 / ARTISTS OF ESTONIA 1
Editor: Johannes Saar
Design: Andres Tali
This book was published in 1998 and is based upon comprehensive documentation of artists compiled over the course of four years by the SCCA, Estonia. "Estonian Artists I" represents 25 artists and only their most essential works have been selected. The objective of this collected work is not to write the history of Estonian art, but rather to serve as its source material. Next year we plan to publish a second edition - two books should create a certain general picture of the developments of contemporary Estonian art. "Estonian Artists I" is one of the first survey reference works since Estonian language literature on contemporary Estonian art was so far limited exclusively to catalogues printed in small numbers. The goal of the book is to promote Estonian art internationally, and at the same time to assist Estonian art teachers and students, not to mention all art enthusiasts.
