International creative project “Landscape painting”

International creative project “Landscape painting”

Short project description

Project is dedicated to the Antanas Žmuidzinavičius (1876 - 1966) – to one of the most prominent personalities of Lithuanian cultural life. The axis of the creative legacy left by A. Žmuidzinavičius consists of landscape drawing and especially of pictures of the Lithuanian seaside. Consequently landscape of Lithuanian seaside should become for the participants of the project the object of creative interpretation, an opportunity to convey these well known and popular motives in one's own way. Each artist by bringing his own idea would shape it in his individual and very different way and be completely free to chose his creative expression from traditional and realistic to generalized and abstract painting compositions.
