The museum provides information about the painter’s conception of art. Niko Pirosmani led a
nomadic life, wandering between city and country, stalls and inns. His creations reflect the vision of an artist as a clear-sighted outsider.

On the 31of October, the world celebrated the Halloween Day. The Museum posted on Facebook the painting of Niko Pirosmani to congratulate people on the day. As his paintings are a little bit dark and scary, they thought it would be a perfect choice for people to visit the exhibition before joining the Halloween parties.
