Henn Roode Võrumaa 1969 oil, cardboard 56.5 × 67.7 cm

Henn Roode’s active work as an artist lasted only 15 years until his death in 1974, yet his creative legacy is abundant. It is also in recent years in particular that the innovative nature of Roode’s art, which in its time did not receive the attention that it deserved, has started attracting more and more attention.

The subject of this painting is, somewhat unconventionally for Roode, a landscape since his primary emphasis was on urban views, seascapes, portraits, nudes and abstractions.
