Tove Jansson

HAM Helsinki Art Museum, Helsinki

  • 29.1.2016–31.12.2030

Tove Jansson was an artist of many talents: she was a painter, author, illustrator and comic artist. She was also one of the best known Finnish artists abroad: the mother of the Moomins.


The works of Tove Jansson (19142001) are amongs the most cherished pieces in the HAM collection. HAM has dedicated some of its galleries to an exhibition of the artists life and works.

In the new hanging, Janssons frescos Party in the City and Party in the Country and her sketches of murals for the Aurora Childrens Hospital are now joined by two Toves murals, Rest After Work and Electricity, which were made for the Pitjnmki factory of the Strmberg company.

The new hanging includes also lamps by designer Paavo Tynell, which were featured in the original venue of the frescos, the Kaupunginkellari restaurant in Helsinki.

Tove Jansson and the Moomins are loved by children and adults alike. For the first time in Helsinki, Tove Janssons work will now be put on permanent display.
