Tove Jansson

Tove Jansson was an artist of many talents: she was a painter, author, illustrator and comic artist. She was also one of the best known Finnish artists abroad: the mother of the Moomins.

The works of Tove Jansson (1914–2001) are amongs the most cherished pieces in the HAM collection. HAM has dedicated some of its galleries to an exhibition of the artist’s life and works.

In the new hanging, Jansson’s frescos Party in the City and Party in the Country and her sketches of murals for the Aurora Children’s Hospital are now joined by two Tove’s murals, Rest After Work and Electricity, which were made for the Pitäjänmäki factory of the Strömberg company.

The new hanging includes also lamps by designer Paavo Tynell, which were featured in the original venue of the frescos, the Kaupunginkellari restaurant in Helsinki.

Tove Jansson and the Moomins are loved by children and adults alike. For the first time in Helsinki, Tove Jansson´s work will now be put on permanent display.
