November 19 – April 7, 2012, Adamson-eric Museum
At the exhibition, we take a look at history, by travelling to either side of the time axis defined by the bracelets designed by Adamson-Eric: on one side are archaeological finds from the end of the Bronze Age and beginning of the Iron Age and, on the other side, artists' creations from the second decade of the 20th century until the present day

This thematic exhibition, which got its title from Greenberg’s oil painting, presents interpretations created by two artists which differ greatly in both form and content, but the deeper reflection of the nature of woman, caught in timeless works of art, speaks to the viewer in any era.
The exhibition Forever Feminine clearly reflects the dynamic of the modernist tendencies of the first half of the 20th century, and highlights the unique work of two Estonian artists, Johannes Greenberg and Ferdi Sannamees. Both masters expressed the complex spiritual states of their portrayed people in a psychologically convincing and artistically remarkable way throughout their lives.
Greenberg and Sannamees were from the same generation, and always searched for something in the multiple layers of their expressive styles. They both characteristically delved into the nature of the women they depicted. They were also prepared to reincarnate their women in a wide variety of roles – from primadonna to loving mother, from dancer to viewer enjoying a theatre performance. The keywords that describe their portraits and figural compositions are beauty, harmoniousness, artistry, dedication and spiritual wealth.
