Oh Finland, Finland - journeys into the Finnish landscape

Oh Finland, Finland invites us to explore these very sights, charting the development of the Finnish landscape tradition from the mid-1850s until the beginning of the 20th century and highlighting its characteristic practices and stylistic aims.

Oh Finland, Finland invites us to explore these very sights, charting the development of the Finnish landscape tradition from the mid-1850s until the beginning of the 20th century and highlighting its characteristic practices and stylistic aims. The works on display will transport visitors back to a time when Finland’s visual and national identity were both still taking shape.

The exhibition is a chance to see how Finnish artists have viewed their native country and captured it on canvas for posterity. It encompasses rural idylls and atmospherically potent vistas, realism and naturalism as well as works that draw on National Romanticism and symbolism for their impact. The paintings on display reflect not just uniquely Finnish preoccupations but also more international genres and trends.

The works on display have been sourced from the Association of Finnish Fine Arts Foundations’ collections: the Alfred Kordelin Foundation, Fortum Art Foundation, Gösta Serlachius Fine Arts Foundation, Signe and Ane Gyllenberg Foundation, OP Group Art Foundation, Art Foundation Merita, UPM-Kymmene Cultural Foundation and the Åbo Akademi Foundation.
