Still Life

Linda Kits-Mägi Still Life 1961 oil, canvas 62.5 × 75 cm

Linda Kits-Mägi was Elmar Kits’s wife and had graduated from the Pallas Art School. She was one of the few female artists from the Pallas school who continued to paint after finishing school. This work completed in 1961 is characteristic of Kits-Mägi. She often painted still-lifes with flowers and as a rule, she placed vivid and multicoloured flowers in front of a relatively neutral background, which helped to emphasise the colouring of the flowers even more. As a surprising detail, Kits-Mägi has signed her work with large lettering along the upper edge of the painting, as if emphasising her personal relationship with the motif that was being depicted.
