This book is a companion to the exhibition Eveline von Maydell. A World in Black and White at the Kadriorg Art Museum (29.03.–07.09.2014). The exhibition and book, which was a collaborative effort of the Art Museum of Estonia and the National Archives of Estonia, introduces a unique art collection left behind in Estonia during World War II. Eveline von Maydell (1890–1962), who was connected to Estonia but identified herself as a Baltic German, was a noblewoman and artist, for whom silhouette art became a profitable source of income and means of self-expression. The book also provides information about Eveline von Maydell and the history of the shadow pictures tradition, and deals with issues related to the preservation and conservation of works of art on paper and made of paper.
