About us

At first glance, the house–museum of the Lithuanian émigré artist and collector Kazys Varnelis looks like a small residential building. In fact, though, it contains more than 40 exhibition spaces combining antique graphic arts, maps, Western European sculpture and painting, historic furniture and Asian artworks, as well as Varnelis’s own optical art compositions.

What will you see?

The only examples in Lithuania of Spanish artist Francisco Goya’s etchings, from the famous cycle Los Caprichos (1798); the famous 1631 Radziwill map of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania; impressive black-and-white masterpieces of optical art, including the work “Convex and Concave”; examples of modernist furniture.
