Endel Kõks (1912–1983)


Endel Kõks had just completed his studies at Pallas by 1943 and thus his more extensive presentation to the public took place in wartime. He also quickly achieved success. Critics were appreciative of his strong colouring and refined taste. Since Kõks left Estonia in 1944, then those four to five years in which he worked intensively form the first and also a separate period in Kõks’s creative work, to which an organic continuation did not follow in his life in exile.
