Distinguished Lithuanian graphic artist, Albina Makunaite (1926-2001).
Makunaite was one of the first graduates of the postwar higher art school,
who nurtured a distinct expression of graphic art - engraving on wood and linoleum.
This generation of artists, quietly and persistently, breaking the stereotypes of Soviet art,
started a new chapter in Lithuanian art.
Makunaite also successfully distinguished herself by illustrating classic works of literature.
The treasury of Lithuanian ethnic culture, which compellingly affects the national consciousness,
served as a source of inspiration for the artist.
