Estonian Legend in Paris: Maire Männik
|Location:||Kumu exhibition spaces|
Maire Männik (1922–2003) was a sculptor who lived and worked in Paris for decades after World War II and studied with the famous Russian-French artist Ossip Zadkine. In her work, she combined motifs of nature with abstract elements. In 2004, her son donated most of her studio legacy to the Republic of Estonia.
