Mikalous Konstantinas Ciurlionis (1875–1911)
“A Fantastic World of Symbols, Light and Harmony”
The exhibition shows 88 fascimile copies of Ciurlionis’s artworks. Since 2000, the Memorial Centre of Culture “The House of Ciurlionis in Vilnius” with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania organizes exhibitions and concerts abroad, dedicated to Mikalous Ciurlionis - one of the brightest representatives of Lithuanian professional music and great artist.

The aim of the organizers was to show the oeuvre of the artist from his first canvases created in 1904-1905 (Truth, Tranquility and others) to the works of 1908-1909 (sonatas, fugues, Rex).
