From 14 December 2016 to 21 January 2017 the Mūkusala Art Salon is delighted to present the exhibition The Courland Album.

The Courland Album is the title coined during research for a unique collection of images from the late 18th – early 19th century, totalling 90 drawings, silhouette cuts and one photograph. The images, which once belonged to a Baltic German family from Kurzeme, the Groschke – Kleins, have been preserved through the centuries and now are a pride of the Zuzāns family collection.

The exhibition is complemented by a book by the Neputns Publishers. It contains all 90 images of the Courland Album and their currently identified sources of inspiration, as well as texts by Edvarda Šmite, Aija Taimiņa, Deniss Hanovs, Pauls Daija and Baiba Vanaga both about the Groschke – Klein family, as well as everyday life in the territory of the Baltics in the late 18th and 19th centuries, paying particular attention to the living space of women – authors of many of the album's images.

Exhibition curator and editor of the book: Līga Lindenbauma
