The Museum of Applied Art and Design presents the first series of exhibitions of Eastern art, «The Silk Road. Old Chinese Art». For the first time in the museum’s history, visitors are presented with almost 100 exhibits, from the period of the dynasty of the Eastern Zhou (1046–771 BC) to the Ming dynasty (1368–1644), revealing the interaction between Eastern and Western cultures in the region where the Silk Road started.

Exhibition «Nicholas Roerich and Latvia» (Paroda «Nikolas Rerichas ir Latvia»); Vilnius Picture Gallery (Vilniaus Paveikslų Galerija) (www.ldm.lt/en), Didžioji g. 4, Vilnius;

The exhibition consists of four parts: the paintings of Nicholas and his son Svetoslav, exhibits from the Latvian Roerich Society, material from the Liepāja Museum about Roerich’s links to Latvia and Latvian artists, Roerich’s colleagues from the Academy of Art and his Latvian students living in Saint Petersburg. Yet probably the most important aspect of this exhibition would be, of course, the artist’s own specially selected paintings sent to Latvia from India in 1937.

So now, «elixir in Adina’s eyes», but not in the «Bordeaux» vine brought from faraway lands by «the doctor», the cunning businessman, the fellow-countryman Dulcamara, not in the decisive «picking» and puffed «macho-way» attacking of women by Italian marine sergeant Belcore like «there are thousands of them out there waiting for me»… And not in the inability to open the mouth and tell the beloved girl straight into the eyes «I love you» by Nemorino, who only has his bicycle and photo camera and till the very end of the opera not knowing his uncle’s legacy has made him a millionaire…
