Linnaeus and Glimpses of Paradise

Sinebrychoff Art Museum , Helsinki

  • 17.2.2022–28.8.2022

Gardens have always been a source of wellbeing and joy, with flowers providing both visual and olfactory delight.


The use of flowers as symbols or ornaments developed into botanical portraiture in the 17th century. The floral still life was born. Pictures became an important aspect of the study of nature and its illustration. Artists specialising in flower painting – a significant number of them women – also left their mark on botanical publications.

A proper history of gardens in Finland begins with the work of two naturalists, Pehr Kalm (1716–1779) and his teacher Carl Linnaeus (1707–1778). At the time there was a strong link between botanical research and garden art. Gardeners prided themselves with their rare plants. Every gardener creates a personal paradise.
