In her book, Marika Rozenberga has summarized the painter’s thoughts and insights into life and art. The narrative outlines episodes of Latvian history related to the course of Jurjāns and his family. The artist has led an active and bright life both in art and in public life.
The glorious edition illustrates the painter’s narration by about 100 reproductions of his paintings.
