About Lithuanian art foundation

The Lithuanian Art Foundation (the Foundation), a public enterprise established in 2013, is the manager of the Foundation’s, the Ellex Valiunas Art Support Foundation’s, the law firm’s Ellex Valiunas (law firm LAWIN until 20-05-2015), and Rolandas Valiūnas’s, attorney-at-law, art collections.

The Foundation has accumulated a collection of Lithuanian art that is very important to Lithuanian society. The distinctive features of this collection are its orientation towards works of art exclusively related to Lithuanian history, thematic variety, and scale. At the moment the collection consists of approximately 1,000 paintings, over 300 sculptures, over 490 maps, over 1,000 pieces of historic graphic art (the oldest pieces in the collection date back to the 15th century), and over 1,800 Lithuanian books and other publications published before 1905. The collection also has Lithuanian medals, silver coins, and other artefacts (ancient Lithuanian armour, guns, money, jewellery, etc.). There are over 6,000 exhibits in the collection, and the majority are objects of Lithuanian heritage collected from all over the world.

The main aims of the Foundation are to establish an art museum for the storage of the collection and to collect, restore, examine and exhibit pieces of art and art collections related to Lithuania; organise exhibitions; publish albums of art; encourage, support and popularize museums, painters, and other artists and subjects related to the fine arts and other forms of art; encourage society’s interest in arts; support and encourage initiatives that contribute to the popularisation of art; and receive and provide charity and support.
