Book covers: paperback
The exhibition of Lithuanian-German artist Aliutė Mečys (1943–2013), organised at the Mykolas Žilinskas Art Gallery in 2014, was the first presentation of her work in Lithuania. The intention to hold the exhibition was first circled around back in 1990, but it was hampered by political changes in the country. During the last decade of the 20th century, a couple of articles about this Lithuanian-German artist have appeared in our press. In 2014, the archive of A. Mečys was transported to the M. K. Čiurlionis National Museum of Art. The Hamburg Artists' Heritage Forum also agreed to lend some works for the exhibition. This exhibition featured a small part of paintings and drawings by the artist, created between 1980 and 2003. The exposition and this publication were the first attempts to understand the interesting artist and her works.
