One Hundred Years of Friendship
Through the exhibition of works selected from the Friends of the Ateneum collection, art acquisition methods and sources are discussed from various perspectives, and the background and provenance of the works are described.
The Friends of the Ateneum, which is Finland’s oldest and largest museum friends association, was founded in 1919 to support the Ateneum Art Museum. In honour of the association’s centenary, the Ateneum hosts the exhibition One Hundred Years of Friendship, which will present works of art donated and funded by the association.
The exhibition, to be staged in one exhibition gallery, will show works in thematic pairs that address, for example: religious topics (Jusepe de Ribera and Anitra Lucander); the depiction of light (Alexander Lauréus and Sulho Sipilä); or the portraiture of women (Hugo Simberg and Marcus Collin). The exhibition will be curated by Hanne Selkokari, curator at the Ateneum Art Museum.
