The first monograph about the legendary painter Voldemārs Zeltiņš (1879–1909) closes a gap that hitherto contradicted to his exceptional status in the art history of Latvia. The life of Zeltiņš is revealed as part of Latvian young literary and artistic bohème in the early 20th century, while his oeuvre and its influence are discussed in the context of related local and international developments where he reached the verge of Expressionism. The book presents almost all hitherto discovered works by Zeltiņš from public and private collections.
