There were artists who played a decisive role in Finnish art history from the late 1800s and during the greater part of the 1900s. The exhibition will be presented in 2017, the anniversary of Finland’s independence.

Ellen Thesleff (1869 -1954) painted at the beginning of her career in naturalist style but became, after the encounter with European modernism, inspired by fauvism and expressionism.

Helene Schjerfbeck (1862-1946) is well-known for her over the years more stripped images, where only the most meaningful remains. The exhibition includes a series of portraits and some still life paintings made from the early 1900s until the years before the artist’s death.

Elga Sesemann (1922-2007) was an expressionist painter and a great colorist. She painted self-portrait, city views and single figures. The works has been considered reflect the feelings during the war.

Sigrid Schauman (1877-1979) was a landscape painter. She was during a time student to Helene Schjerfbeck and also educated herself in Paris, where she had close contact with Sonia and Robert Delaunay.
