Fragile – art treasures of the City Hall in exile

Loviisa Museum, Loviisa

  • 31.5.2022–2.10.2022

The session hall at the City Hall houses the city's most valuable works of art, works that are linked to the history of Loviisa and Finland. This year, at an age of 160, the City Hall is about to be renovated and the fragile works of art were exiled to the Loviisa Town Museum.


The portrait of Queen Louisa Ulrika was given to the city in 1752 and in 1862 the Queen was joined by Emperor Alexander II. The portrait of Carl Gustav Mannerheim has a self-evident place as a symbol of the period of independence. The collection also includes works by two artists with links to Loviisa: sculptor Sigrid af Forselles, a relative of the city's first mayor, Jacob af Forselles, and landscape painter Berndt Lindholm, who belongs both to the art history of Finland and Sweden.

The collection will be exhibited and displayed to the public during the exile of the collection at the Loviisa Town Museum until the 2nd of October 2022.
