Spirit of the Times. Collection Ane Gyllenberg tells the story of how an art collection was created and the concurrent changes in society, art and culture that it reflects. To what extent does the spirit of the times influence how people decorate and what kind of art they like?

The exhibition examines the collection and the interior of Villa Gyllenberg within the context of the style ideals of their times, thereby shedding light on three specific eras and phenomena. Visitors will get to experience a luxurious interior with antiques, old paintings, and religious objects from the 1930s. In the 1940s and 1950s there was a need to create a narrative about Finnish art and culture, which also reflects on the Gyllenberg Collection. However, Ane Gyllenberg also collected art by internationally oriented women artists. The 1960s was the breakthrough of modernism in interior decoration and art.
