Citation: Inferno: Journal of Art History Vol. 8 Article 2 2003
Abstract: This article discusses Karin Luts, one of the first women artists to be trained in Estonia, she was among those who left Estonia in small boats on the eve of the Soviet invasion and started new lives in Sweden. She had to live through all the hardships and pains of moving to a new cultural environment, had to suffer losing her national identity, and find a new home and a new homeland. She left for good, never to return, not even when the political climate would have permitted it. Her relationship with Estonia was complicated and controversial, as was her relationship with Swedish culture and with the culture of her fellow refugees.
