Edmond Arnold Blumenfeldt "Petseri vaade"

Edmond Arnold Blumenfeldt "Petseri vaade"

Blumenfeldt is known in the art history first of all as the member of the legendary Group of the Estonian Artists (Eesti Kunstnikkude Rühm), functioning in the 1920s. Similarily to the other members of the Group, Blumenfeldt used the constructive-geometric style, being exceptional in the Estonian art history, preferring to the inconcrete the mathematically measurable world of lines and capacities. Blumenfeldt is an exceptionally rare author at the auctions. He mainly worked as a theatre decorator and his paintings are due to the mentioned fact few in numbers, the majority of them have perished or are lost because of complicated historcal situation.
The Petseri view reveals the personal experience of the artist, who was born and raised in Russia, St.Petersburg and has totally neglected rationality, being characteristic to the early works of Blumenfeldt, becoming one of the most outstanding pieces of the artist, whose creative period remained short. A jovial atmosphere surrounds a slightly sad and nostalgic cottage, where growing into lilacs is no sign of negligence, but of pure joy and forgetting of tomorrow.
