The aim of the paper is to show the attributes of Kaunas bohemia and to describe its peculiarities, while examining memories of contemporaries and art works. Sudden becoming a state capital, absence of cultural traditions of the city, still often evidencing provincialism, disappointment felt during interwar period, official restraints, communication with foreign bohemian communities determined the fact that the image of Kaunas bohemian was not a smooth one, some types of man image can be seen here: one idealizing the past, a dandy or a smart dresser and a mutineer. The issue of women bohemianism in the context of Lithuania is quite specific. Since society was fairly conservative, and its norms had especially strong influence on women, it was difficult for an artist woman to blend into bohemian male environment; therefore the attributes of an artist woman’s image in the bohemian environment have been examined individually.
