In the world of art, A. Lukštas stands out for the uniqueness and mastery of watercolour painting. Carrying on the traditions of the classics, he had deserved a proper place beside his teachers Kajetonas Sklėrius and Česlovas Kontrimas. Captivating sights of Lithuanian countryside conveyed by means of picturesquely subtle watercolour technique had never ceased raising admiration among lovers of art. The painter’s exclusive skill at watercolour technique resulted in a perfect expression of various states and moods of nature, especially in a variety of views featuring the sky over the lake, which was one of his favourite motifs.
A. Lukštas was a charismatic personality with unique qualities of a pedagogue. For us he will always remain a human legend, a painter, an educator of such outstanding artists as Pranas Repšys, Mindaugas Skudutis, Solomonas Tetelbaumas and others. Everyone who studied ar Kaunas Juozas Naujalis Art School (now Kaunas Art Gymnasium) or at Children’s Evening School of Art (now it is known as Antanas Martinaitis School of Art) was endowed with profound imprints on their worldview.
