Original title: Mees meistrite linnast

Documentary Duration 29:30

Man from the City of Masters

Professional artist Ants Viidalepp (1921-2012) was 85 at the time of filming the documentary. He is known for younger generations mostly because of his books of recollections. At his exhibition "Fifty Viidalepps" held in Viinistu Art Museum in the spring of 2006, the artist showed his grotesque, folksy small-format oil paintings. Viidalepp's works often depict cartoonish funny stories where the characters wear festive clothes from the early 20th century whil looking simple-minded and happy. Every picture has its own strange everyday fabula just like the artist's endless recollective stories that he tells to accompany his work.
