The exhibition of Lithuanian book illustrations of the 20th century Warm Reminiscence

M. K. Čiurlionis National Museum of Art has acquired a unique 20th century collection of original illustrations’ drawings and projects. This legacy reflects the birth and materialization of the artist's thought from the intermediate point to the ultimate goal – a printed book image. The retrospective exhibition Warm Reminiscence presents drawings, projects and sketches which are interesting and valuable as original works of art.

The exhibition will surely arouse reminiscences – starting with those who have just come up to their 20th and ending with seniors. While the youngest generation will have an opportunity to get familiar with the development of the art of illustrations and the most famous creators.
