24.02.–01.04.2010 From Köler to Subbi. 150 Years of Estonian Classical Painting From Enn Kunila’s Collection

The exhibition From Köler to Subbi. 150 Years of Classical Estonian Painting from the Collection of Enn Kunila was held at the Tallinn Art Hall on 22 February–1 April 2010. This was the collection’s first survey exhibition.

The exhibition’s main emphasis was on paintings from the first half of the 20th century, the so-called golden age of Estonian art. Konrad Mägi, Ants Laikmaa, Adamson-Eric, Nikolai Triik, Ado Vabbe and Elmar Kits were among the more important artists that were represented. Olev Subbi was the contemporary artist who was represented at the exhibition.

A nearly 200-page art album entitled Classical Estonian Painting in Enn Kunila’s Collection was published in parallel with the exhibition. The author of its texts is the art scholar Eero Epner and the album’s designer is Tiit Jürna. The libraries of all of Estonia’s schools received the book as a gift.
The exhibition’s curator was Harry Liivrand and its designer was the painter Olev Subbi. Nearly 13,000 visitors attended the exhibition over the course of six weeks.
