Mikalojus Konstantinas Ciurlionis (1875-1911) - Lithuanian artist, composer and writer - of whom practically no one outside of Lithuania, and perhaps Russia and Poland, will have heard. However, he was one of the pioneers of modern art and, in his short life, turned out 400 musical compositions and 300 paintings, as well as works of literature and poetry. He is enormously influential in Lithuanian culture. He was born near Druskininkai and this statue stands in the park in the town centre. As you see, it was a rainy day!
There's a Website devoted to him, which has examples of his photography: http://ciurlionis.eu/en/
