In the second half of the 1930s, two young and up-and-coming sculptors – Linda Sõber (1911–2004) and Endel Kübarsepp (1913–1972) – attracted lots of attention on the Estonian cultural scene. They left Estonia as refugees in 1944 and, until recently, information about their subsequent lives and activities had been fragmentary. Linda Sõber and Endel Kübarsepp became two of the most acclaimed and promising young sculptors at the very start of their professional careers in the second half of the 1930s. Their works were repeatedly reported on in the press and can be found in art museums. Endel Kübarsepp also participated actively in exhibitions organised by exile artists during the post-war years in Germany. At the end of the 1940s, the two sculptors went their separate ways. Linda Sõber continued her life in Italy and Endel Kübarsepp in the U.S. During the decades of Soviet occupation, the work of both sculptors was ignored, primarily for ideological reasons. However, today, their oeuvre is considered to be among the Estonian sculptural classics of the 1930s.
