The importance of Ants Laikmaa has already a long time ago became an increasing phenomenon. From one side we must once and again remind of his importance on the cultural landscape of Estonia: being a paragon to whole generations because of his organizational abilities and remaining true to his personal values. But from another hand we must always remember that Laikmaa's authority could not have emerged from an empty spot - it had to be based on his creation. For example Johannes Greenberg or Nikolai did not become his students by chance, neither did they become just suddenly the celebrities of the Estonian art. It is justified that until now Laikmaa is regarded mainly a pastel painter. From one side the abundance of the mentioned works while comparing with works of other styles, from another side the additional values of Laikmaa's pastel paintings. The peak of his creation is regarded to be the period up to mid-1920ies and so the current work represents both Laikmaa's best creative period and his most characteristic painting technique. But this is not all. We are dealing with a Läänemaa landscape that simultaneously carries two very important aspects in the biography of Laikmaa. First: the artist himself came from Läänemaa. So the present work reflects the author's personal memory that makes the picture extremely warm and meaningful. Second: Laikmaa's searching for the Estonian national art that found expression just in landscapes that were made in his home country.
