Bronislavs Kondrats (1890-1935)

Broņislavs Kondrāts was educated at the Riga City School of Art (1911–1913), where his major influence was Vilhelms Purvītis. His debut came late – in 1928, at the exhibition in honour of the 10th anniversary of the Latvian State, which took place at the Riga City Art Museum. Kondrāts painted in an Impressionist manner, using flamboyant, pliant strokes and shaping the volume at the same time. Contrasts of light and shade, dynamic angles, lightness, quickness and precision gave Kondrāts’s paintings a feel of vivacity. He depicted waters with harbour views, fishermen, ships, the bridges of the River Daugava.
