Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna in Rome

A solo exhibition of Konrad Mägi’s works was open at the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna in Rome from the autumn of 2017 to the winter of 2018. This was the first solo exhibition of Mägi’s works in Western Europe. Over 40 landscape paintings from Estonian national collections and private collections were on display. The paintings introduced to foreign spectators all of Mägi’s more important creative periods from 1908 to 1925, showing Mägi primarily as a painter who perceived nature as a metaphysical and sacred space. The exhibition was accompanied by a catalogue, Mägi’s biography published in both Italian and English, and a children’s colouring book. The exhibition was part of the programme celebrating EV100, the centenary of the Republic of Estonia.
