 The 17th century was a period of significant transformations in the architecture of Riga. The medieval town turned into a modern-time Baroque city. This complex process was exemplified by a diverse spectrum of phenomena – reconstruction programme of fortifications, architecture of sacred, public and residential buildings as well as their décor. The study of Baroque Riga’s changing visual image and relevant international sources is supplied with a rich array of images from Latvian and foreign archives, museums and libraries. The publication is based on the doctoral dissertation defended at the Art Academy of Latvia in 2010.
