Helge Dahlmann

This summer, paintings by Helge Dahlman (1924–1979) from the manor’s own collection are displayed in the gardener’s house. As an artist, Helge Dahlman was an eternal seeker. His works contain numerous surprising twists and turns and individual journeys of exploration into the world of modern art.

The earliest works in the exhibition represent expressionism and subdued pointillism characteristic of a group of mid-century Finnish artists, the so-called lokakuun ryhmä (October group). In the 1950s Dahlman’s style crystallised into a realism with an austerity of colour while working in Olkkala in Vihti. Dahlman started to diverge from the concise form when he moved into the atelier building on Nallepolku in Tapiola towards the end of the 1950s. The new paintings inspired by French art paired brilliant whites with incandescent yellows, reds and blues.

It was precisely this period of colour that introduced the late master of Laukko Manor, Juhani Lagerstam, to Helge Dahlman. Juhani used to drop by the artist’s atelier to purchase a painting or two as a present to his wife Leena. This is how the Helge Dahlman collection exhibited in the gardener’s house was started.
