Stories of Finnish Art
The Ateneum Art Museum has the country’s oldest and largest art collection.
The Ateneum Art Museum has the country’s oldest and largest art collection. The collections exhibition presents well-loved classics alongside seldom-exhibited works of art. It draws new parallels and highlights works that have not been on show for a long time.
Stories of Finnish Art illustrates the development of art in Finland from 1809 until the 1950s. At the exhibition, the story of Finnish art is juxtaposed with international developments in art and contemporary social events. On display, side by side, are Finnish and international masterpieces from our collections, such as Le Corbusier’s Two Women (1939), Eero Järnefelt’s Under the Yoke (Burning the
Brushwood) (1893), Edvard Munch’s Bathing Men (1907–08) and Hugo Simberg’s The Wounded Angel (1903).
