Museum named after Roman Suta and Aleksandra Beļcova

    Aleksandra Beļcova (b. Surazh, Russian Empire, 1892 – d. 1981, Riga, Latvian SSR) studied in Novozybkov and at the Penza Art College where she was introduced to exiled painters Jēkabs Kazaks, Konrāds Ubāns, and Voldemārs Tone. She married a Latvian painter, Romans Suta, in 1922, and they traveled to Paris, Berlin, and Dresden. Before that, she had studied at the Petrograd State Free Art Workshop and held her first solo exhibition. In Latvia, she joined the Riga Artists Group with Suta. Their daughter, Tatiana, was born in Paris in 1923. In 1925 she painted “The White and the Black”. Her art was mostly cubist and later realist with portraits and still lifes in oil and watercolor, as well as china. The home of Aleksandra Belcova and Romans Suta in Riga is now a museum and art gallery.
