Livonia Latvia Art

Art Nouveau was an ornamental style of art that flourished in Europe and the United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Its designers believed that art should work together to create a total work of art, with buildings, furniture, textiles, clothing and jewelry that correspond to the principles of Art Nouceau.

Riga's television tower, which has a design reminiscent of the Eiffel Tower, was completed in 1986. The Baltic countries, which are growing rapidly, had to have their own version of Art Nouveau architecture. It is the main weather port in the Baltic States and is expected to grow and attract visitors from Europe and the United States, as well as other parts of Europe.

Most tourists come to Riga for the historic Town Hall, which was renovated and modernised in 2001 on the occasion of its 800th birthday. Latvian universities also have a large number of galleries dedicated to art, architecture, literature, history and other arts and sciences, including the National Museum of Latvia, the University of Ljubljana and the Institute of Art and Design. These include an art and architecture museum in the city centre, as well as several museums and galleries in other towns and cities.

Oskar Kallis used the subject of forty paintings, as did Nikolai Triiik and Valo Tuul. Latvian architects, including examples of decorative Art Nouveau by M. Eizenstein, as well as a number of modernist and contemporary works of art.

It is probably no coincidence that the prevailing symbolic movement in all three countries drew heavily on history and local traditions, and gave the Baltic identity a splendor through an eloquent, poetic, and largely overlooked art. Lithuania expressed a more cautious response to St. Petersburg, which intensified when the uprising was ruthlessly crushed in the early 1830s, while Latvia, with its own history of political instability, encouraged a much more aggressive response than Lithuania. Nevertheless, Hansa was able to give Riga economic and political stability, giving it a strong foundation to survive in the event of a political conflagration.

The Latvian state was still struggling in 1921 with the staggered effects of the war and revolution, and its finances and trade were seeking new methods of reconstruction. The agricultural laws that followed damaged the large farms left behind by wars and revolutions, the exchange rate became unfavourable and imported goods became more and more expensive for consumers. Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, who introduced perestroika, led to a situation in the late 1980s in which many Soviet republics, including Latvia, were unable to regain their freedoms and freedoms. Immediately after separation from the Soviet Union in 1991, Riga suffered an economic recession, but stabilised its economic situation, achieving a positive growth rate and GDP growth of 2.8% in 1996.

The Bolsheviks made peace offers on February 18, and Latvia was ready to negotiate with the National Defence, which was the main instrument for the liberation of Latvia from the reds. The policy of non-intervention was abandoned in favour of Ulmani's government and the Russo-Latvian peace treaty was signed, followed by an agreement of 20 June 1921 on the return of the IO000 who were to be in Russia. The Baltic and German superiority in Latvia now seemed to have averted the consequences of a military situation. Colonel. Alexander left and the Latvian armed forces were reorganized under the command of Lieutenant General Vadim Kuznetsov.

Germany was forced to cancel the treaty, enabling Latvia and the other Baltic states to assert their independence. Latvia declared independence and Riga became the capital of the Latvian SSR, but the country was annexed by the Soviet Union in August 1940.

After World War II, Latvia was overrun by the Soviet Union and its successor state, the Latvian SSR, under Stalin's leadership.

Russia's rise to a strong northern power was formalized in the Treaty of Nystad in 1721, and Sweden's northern dominance ended. That year, Russia's Tsar Peter the Great invaded Riga in the course of the "Great Northern War." Latvia declared its full independence after Russia recognised it on 6 September 1991. This year, the name "Latvia" was also used for the first time, reflecting the desire for recognition expressed by Estonia and Lithuania.

In 1921, the process was still in progress, when Nystad ratified the Treaty and a new treaty between Russia and Latvia was signed in 1924.

The Baltic National Defence retreated to the Vistula River, and Soviet Russia found many soldiers among the Latvian refugees and retained a small number of its rifle divisions that had fought in the war. The Parleys, in which the United States and England participated, did not prevent the capture of the city in which Baron H. Manteuffel invaded on May 22 with a smaller detachment and died in a fight with the men he had led. German volunteers, the 2nd Infantry Division under the command of Lieutenant General Jürgen von Schleicher, took Goldingen and Windau to reinforce them in February and March.
