Tampere Art Museum, Tampere

Magnus Enckell is a central figure in Finnish art history.


Painter Magnus Enckell (1870–1925) is particularly known as a leader of Finnish symbolism in the 1890s. Later he changed his style of expression, becoming a trailblazer in Neo-Impressionism, bathed in colour and light.

In this exhibition, Enckell is presented as broadly as possible and from many perspectives. His wide-ranging output includes portraits, landscapes, fantasies, religious themes, still lifes and human studies. He created many monumental paintings for public spaces. Enckell also created an extensive output of drawings. The exhibition features works from five decades from early student works through the mythological motifs of the 1920s.
The works on display are from public and private collections around Finland.

Magnus Enckell is also an essential part of art history of Tampere. The altarpiece of the Cathedral, the Ascension fresco and the large and colourful glass painting above it are made by Enckell. The artists son Jorgen Enckell donated his fathers works to the Tampere Art Museum in 1983 and 1986. This donated collection of about 300 works includes paintings, drawings and graphic art. Almost 50 works from this body and the art museums other collections are included at the exhibition.

A richly illustrated exhibition catalogue featuring articles by experts is also available. This is a compilation of the exhibition that opened at the Ateneum Art Museum on 23 October 2020.

The exhibition has been produced by the Ateneum Art Museum / The National Gallery.
