In 2019, 125 years have passed since the artist Väinö Rautio’s birth in Vyborg.
Lappeenranta Art Museum has put together a retrospective exhibition of the artist’s work, comprising works from the museum’s own collection and from private collections. After the war, Rautio lived and worked in South Karelia and in 1945 participated in the founding of the association Lappeenrannan Taiteenystävät (Lappeenranta Friends of Art) and its drawing school where he also taught. Rautio built an atelier at his summer cottage on the island of Paimensaari in Savitaipale in 1948. He is known as a versatile painter of landscapes, still lives, portraits and selfportraits.
The works he painted in his birth town Vyborg during the Interim Peace after the Winter War and before the Continuation War form a fascinating series.
