Didrichsen Art Museum
The Didrichsen Art Museum is a unique combination of art museum and a private home on Kuusisaari island.
The museum is the result of a love of art. All pieces are bought by Marie-Louise and Gunnar Didrichsen together. It was important to them that they both liked the artworks.
The collection consists of Finnish art from the 20th century among others Edelfelt, Cawén, Schjerfbeck, Särestöniemi, Linnovaara, Hiltunen and Pullinen. In the modern international art collection there are works by: Picasso, Kandinsky, Miró, Léger, Moore, Giacometti and Arp.
The museum also holds Finland’s only Pre-Columbian art collection and a collection of Oriental art.
In the cosy Villa Didrichsen designed by architect Viljo Revell (1910-1965) art and architecture meet with the surrounding nature. The unique park around the museum is not filled with sweet flowers but instead with sculptures by fro example Henry Moore and Eila Hiltunen.
