VISITING PUŠKAITIS

This exhibition is dedicated to A. Lerhis-Puškaitis and his pupils.

Lerhis-Puškaitis, with his spouse Luīze, used to entertain guests in their living room, including his pupils: brothers Jānis and Kārlis Straubergs, and brothers Ludis and Roberts Bērziņš. They were all born in Džūkste, and their first teacher was none other than A. Lerhis-Puškaitis. The further life of these distinguished citizens of the Džūkste region was related to folkloristics, history and writing, with their creative work permeating the entire endeavour to research and collect Latvian cultural-historical heritage. They were not only teachers and university professors, but also poets.

At the exhibition, visitors have a chance to see a late 19th to early 20th century interior.
