In 2012, the Art Museum of Estonia received a priceless gift: the Reinans family donated a large collection of 17th to 20th century silver works of art and a selection of prints collected by Alur Reinans, who lived most of his life in Sweden. The exhibition displays this donation for the first time: decorative items made by silversmiths in Tallinn, Tartu, Narva and many other cities, tableware and utility items, as well as 19th century prints of Estonian subjects and Eduard Wiiralt’s post-war works. On the occasion of the exhibition, the Art Museum of Estonia will publish a voluminous and thorough catalogue on the art collection.
