This book, which was authored by the Art Museum of Estonia’s present and past specialists, tells the story of how we developed into a museum, but also reflects the larger history of Estonian culture, politics and society throughout the century. The narrative starts at a time when a small group of intellectuals recognised the obligation and the opportunity to start organising Estonian cultural life across a wide spectrum. It continues with the story of the continued growth of the museum and the transformation of the enthusiasts’ ideas into a professional organisation. This is followed by how World War II not only destroyed our independence, but also our art, as works of art, archives and books were burned. And how, during the post-war years, despite the harsh economic conditions, and especially the ideological demands, the museum was able to preserve its backbone and the Estonian art legacy, organise exhibitions and research the material hidden in the collections, and how one of the first great cultural decisions made by the government of the re-independent Republic of Estonia was to build a new art museum: the first building in Estonia to be designed as a museum, something that had been anticipated and expected for so long. Today, the Art Museum of Estonia has grown into a large organisation that includes five branches, and we take our own responsibilities and opportunities just as seriously as those who participated in the impassioned debates of a century ago, when the answer to the question of whether an art museum was even necessary was not yet clear. The goal of this book was to collect, research and share the historical knowledge in our possession.
