Ado Vabbe. Wunderbar
After being displayed in the Kumu Art Museum in 2020, the exhibition now travels to the Tartu Art Museum. It offers a panorama of the different stages of Ado Vabbe’s (1892–1961) career: his early abstract works with their playful Indian ink drawings, colourful commedia dell’arte characters, sun-filled memories of the artist’s journeys in southern Europe, his nuanced studies of everyday scenes, and women as a source of dreams and desire. The exhibition is accompanied by a detailed and richly illustrated monograph on Ado Vabbe, the last research project of the late art historian Tiiu Talvistu.
