The Halosenniemi Museum, Tuusula Museum

The studio home in National Romantic style of painter Pekka Halonen (1865-1933) by the Tuusulanjärvi Lake.

The museum presents and investigates the life and work painter Pekka Halonen (1865-1933) as well as exhibits other artists.

A versatile artist and master portrayer of Finnish landscapes and people, Halonen absorbed the latest international trends and ingeniously applied these to the depiction of Finnish nature. The countryside around Lake Tuusula provided him with a rich source of ideas and inspiration, and it was there that Halonen developed the distinctive style for which he is renowned.

Halosenniemi was designed by Pekka Halonen himself and his brother Antti Halonen and was completed in 1902. Architecture of Halosenniemi can be seen as an expression of the cultural aspirations of the National Romantic era. In the early 1890s, many Finnish artists built year-round studio-villas to rural areas. Their aim was to build a distinctive ‘Finnish’ style by integrating local architecture and elements borrowed from various other cultures.

Halonen's studio was opened to the public in the 1950s. Today the museum specialises in presenting material related to Halonen's art, his lifetime achievements and the famous artists' colony of Tuusula to which he and his friends belonged. Every year the museum hosts 4-5 theme exhibitions showcasing Halonen's art side by side with the work of his contemporaries and later generations of artists up to the present day.e and work the artist as well as exhibits other artists.
