Ülo Sooster. Landscape with Eyes. 1968. Private collection

Sooster 100: View from Private Collections

Ülo Sooster (1924–1970), whose artistic career and life were cut short, managed to leave behind a legacy of thousands of drawings and paintings which belong to the European surrealist heritage despite having been created on the other side of the Iron Curtain. The exhibition dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the birth of an inimitably playful creator and a significant reformer of Estonian post-war modernism displays works that belong to private collections.
