Riga Bourse represented in Director's Choice art book series

The Riga Stock Exchange art museum "Riga Bourse" has the honor to represent Latvia and the Baltic for the first time in the circles of art institutions in the book series “Director's Choice” of the highly acclaimed London publishing house “Scala Arts & Heritage Publishers”. Latvian Television reports.

Some 60 books have been published in the series so far, representing major national galleries.

Daiga Upeniece, head of the Art Museum Riga Bourse, said: “I see it as a very great honor, and it is a honor for Latvia, because it is a London publishing house, one of the most famous art publishing houses, that has turned directly to the Baltic so that our collections are known.”

Upeniece notes that the book series “Director's Choice” is an opportunity to promote the recognition of collections: “It is Scala Arts & Heritage Publishers Ltd, which invites art museum directors from America, Asia and predominantly Europe, to write about their museum collections, choosing between 30 and 36 works. And the great value of this book is that it's an opportunity to promote this collection in the wide world because we need to understand that we have no fame such as the Louvre or the National Gallery, and we need to promote that recognition.”

The book series began with the National Gallery of London, and a total of about 60 directors of the world's art museums have already written about their collections.

The book collection in English is available at the Riga Bourse and at London's bookstores, in many museums in Central Europe and Scandinavian countries, as well as Taiwan, Korea, Japan, Canada, and the US.
