Vytautas Kasiulis Art Museum

Address: A. Goštauto g. 1, Vilnius 01104

Only the greatest artists have museums named after them: Salvador Dalí, Frida Kahlo, Claude Monet, Vytautas Kasiulis. Yes, the latter is a Lithuanian. In the center of Vilnius city, there is an art museum dedicated to him. Don’t just presume that we are fussy and the artist is only interesting to us. Oh no. His works today, adorn the Paris and New York Modern Art museums, galleries of France, USA, Canada, Great Britain, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, Germany, Argentina, Australia and other countries. We could go on and on. In fact, the Parisians may even try to question whether the talents of this artist belong to them. Yet definitely not so! Paris got to know him as an already established artist. They certainly inspired, but did not raise him. In 1960, the artist acquired his first art gallery, where he also exhibited works by well-known Parisian art scholars. Later, he exchanged for a larger and more respectable Galerie Royale in central Paris. As years went by, the artist’s place of residence, position in society and creative styles had been changing. Which is why, at his museum’s exposition, all periods of the artist’s creative quests are reflected. Which in turn, gives you the opportunity to get an insight into the world of a unique artist. And he will fascinate both the professionals and those who have never held a brush in their hands. Enjoy observing the evolution of art? Then you will most likely enjoy marching through the country’s evolution within The Old Arsenal building, found 1,300 steps away.
