Romans Suta (1896-1944) was a Latvian painter, graphic artist, stage designer and art theoretician. In 1919 he became member of Expressionist group which in 1920 transformed to Riga artists group.
Together with his wife Aleksandra Belcova they introduced the Latvian public to ideas of Cubism and Constructivism and Suta opened a porcelain painting studio Baltars in 1924. In 1926 Suta left Riga Artists group and joined the Artist society Zaļā Vārna.
Suta mostly painted still lifes and figural compositions. After the first experiments in Modernism, he turned to a more realistic manner of representation. He is considered initiator and developer of a national constructive style, especially in interior design. Also he was a prominent figure and active protagonist of modernist trends in Latvian art.
