In the monograph dr. architect Lina Preišegalavičienė reveals in detail the life and work of a well-known architect, artist, pedagogue, and pioneer of modern architecture and "national style", Vladimiras Dubeneckis. The creative period of a well-known artist was short (lasting just over a decade) but impressively prominent. One of the distinctive features of V. Dubeneckis' creative biography is that being a non-Lithuanian he became the first seeker of "national style" in Independent Lithuania. The known and unknown historical material accumulated in one place will encourage many to rethink the established knowledge of the history of Lithuanian architecture and art. The study is presented with an abundance of archival, bibliographic, and illustrative material (272 pages, 712 items, and 376 illustrations). The book is intended for art critics, culturologists, architects, art students, and the general public interested in the national culture of Independent Lithuania.
