Summer 2014 LIFE IN ESTONIA: Enn Kunila’s Collection
COLOURS OF THE GOLDEN AGE
by Eero Epner
The exhibition that opened in Tallinn’s Mikkeli Museum is entitled “Colours of the Golden Age” and consists of paintings from Enn Kunila’s collection. The exhibition is best summed up by Enn Kunila when he says “Often people talk about motifs or literary content in paintings, but for me those are not the most important aspects. Everything to do with composition and colour is much more significant, especially the strokes of the paintbrush.” It is according to this principle that Kunila has selected works for his collection, the majority of which are paintings by Estonian artists from the first half of the 20th century.
