Public domain photograph of 19th-century portrait painting, free to use, no copyright restrictions image - Picryl description

Konrad Mägi (1878–1925) was an Estonian painter, primarily known for his landscape work. He was one of the most colour-sensitive Estonian painters of the first decades of the 20th century, and Mägi's works on motifs of the island of Saaremaa are the first modern Estonian nature paintings. Mägi received his elementary art education from the drawing courses of the German Artisans' Society of Tartu (1899–1902.)

Konrad Magi (1878–1925) was born in 1878 in Southern Estonia and spent his early childhood there. Little is known about his family: his mother was a farmer’s wife, and his father was a manager of manorial estates who also participated in the Estonian nationalist movement. Mägi was 11 years old when his family moved to Tartu. Alas his education turned out to be extremely brief.
