Collection highlights
Vive Tolli is a part of a generation that shaped the image of the national school of art in the 1960s. Subjectivity and idealism, respect for aesthetic principles and classical perfection in technical questions were characteristic of the female artists of the generation. To this day Vive Tolli has managed to preserve her leading role in Estonian graphic art. She has earned several awards at international exhibitions and she is much loved by the Estonian art public. Although Vive Tolli has only worked as a professor for a short time, many young graphic artists consider her as their mentor, especially in the field of ‘intaglio'. In Tolli's later artwork, drawing has given way to colour and illusion of space (including the iris effect) that has added metaphysical meaningfulness to her works. Anne Untera
