On 2 October 2018 in Luxembourg Permanent Representative of the Republic of Latvia to the European Union Mrs Sanita Pavļuta-Deslandes together with the judges of European Court of Justice and representatives of Riga Art Nouveau Centre opened an exhibition “Art Nouveau Architecture: Riga”. The exhibition presents the aspects characteristic of Art Nouveau in Riga – eclectic, sometimes particularly overdone, satiated ornamentalism and the style specific to national romanticism. The opening of the exhibition took place in the presence Mr. Koen Lenaerts, the President of the European Court of Justice.

Another exhibition – “Art Nouveau architecture: in Riga and Latvia” is displayed in the European Court of Auditors.

Both exhibitions will be displayed in Luxembourg until 30 November.

Both exhibitions are part of the Public Diplomacy Programme dedicated to the centenary of the Republic of Latvia and coordinated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Latvia.
