The Hanseatic League

Last year I entered an oil painting for the 2021, 41st International Hanseatic Days exhibition which will take place in Riga, Latvia.

The Hanseatic League was a Northern Medieval powerhouse promoting trade between Northern European Countries.

The Exhibition theme is "Hanseatic New Gold".

The painting has been accepted by the HansartWorks Project and will be exhibited in Riga amongst work from seven countries including Germany and Russia.


The Exhibition opens on August 20th until September 19th 2021.

Hopefully Covid will not stop me travelling there should the Exhibition go ahead.

The whole enterprise is to deal with the new values in the network of the International Hanseatic League and promote the importance of contacts and communication between Hanseatic cities.

This year Beverley is the latest new member of the League and this coincides with the founding of Beverley by St. John of Beverley.
