ESTONIAN ART
TWO CONTRIBUTING ARTIST IN ESTONIAN HISTORY

Estonia is a very unique country when it comes to visual
art. The main reason for this is the lack of historical
depictions during battles and times of historic
importance. The focus here is on two important artists of
Estonian origin.

MICHEL, SITTOW
1469- 1526

MICHEL, SITTOW
• Michael, Sittow was born on 1469 in Revel,

present day Tallinn.
• In 1484 he began his apprenticeship in

Bruges, which lead to this particular style
of painting.
• Netherlandish Art was a prevalent art form

in northern Europe during the 15th-16th
century, most notable for its portrayal of
religious imagery and life like human
portraits.

KONRAD MÄGI
1878 - 1925

KONRAD MÄGI
• Konrad Mägi was born on 1878 in

southern Estonia.
• Konrad studied art in St. Petersburg and

dropped out before graduating in 1906,
however, what he gained there would
heavily attribute to Estonian
Expressionism in the 20th century.
• Expressionism originated in Germany in

the early 20th century. Placing an
emphasis on distortion to alter and inflict
certain emotions to otherwise typical
landscape paintings.
