Exhibition

Trough my travels I found myself - Helene Schjerfbeck

The exhibition describes how Helene Schjerfbeck became Helene, and how a talented student grew into one of the most influential artists in our history. The exhibition focuses specifically on Schjerfbeck’s years of travel, during which she stayed in Paris, Pont-Aven in northern France, Fiesole in Italy, and St Ives in England at the end of the 19th century.

What was the importance of travel for her work and working methods – and how did it influence her art when she returned to her home country? The exhibition also includes works that have not previously been shown in Finland.

The works in the exhibition include landscapes, still lifes, and depictions of people who were important to the artist. The exhibition also includes 16 of Schjerfbeck’s self-portraits from the period between 1884 and 1945, presented in a chronological order, which makes for an interesting viewing experience. In total, the exhibition features more than 130 paintings, drawings and sketchbooks.

An exhibition of works by Helene Schjerfbeck (1862–1946) will be shown at the Royal Academy of Arts in London until 27 October 2019. The exhibition is the first comprehensive overview of Schjerfbeck’s work in the UK. The exhibition that Finns get to see at the Ateneum will be more than twice the size of the one staged in London. It is curated by Anna-Maria von Bonsdorff, chief curator at the Ateneum.
