Eduard Ole set his goals alreadya at the age of 16 by going to study to the Penza art school. Even though this school remained for Ole the only official establishment for receiveg of the artistic education, he forcefully entered the Estonian artistic landscape already in 1920. As an extremely original author, being in the command of different painting manners, Ole was between the two World Wars undoubtedly one of the most significant Estonian artists. From cubism he proceded to art déco, from a laconic style to mellow colour transitions. From the portraits of the 1930ies Ole proceded with the continuation of landscape painting traditions in the beginning of the 1940ies. “Rannavaade” belongs to Ole’s art historically most valued creational heritage of the Estonian origin. The work belongs to the well-known series of North-Estonian coastal views, where according to the words of specialists was revealed the author’s new quality. “Soluble colours form new shades, on the paintings prevail subtle and elegant atmosphere, which characterizes the author’s rich sense of colours”, writes Arvo Mägi in a justified manner. As an artist, having been born at Valgamaa, Ole’s approach to the sea is not work-related, but carefully romantic. As an eternal experimenter, Ole tests here different colour transitions, but into the heart of the painting still places a nostalgic sailing-boat. Art historical meaningfulness is depicting here by the means of the lowered sails the current situation and Ole’s personal forced leaving in the nearest future.
