The Magic North - Finnish National Gallery

Myths, Fairy Tales, Folk Stories

Finnish and Norwegian art in the late 19th and early 20th centuries was strongly influenced by Symbolism. Instead of the real world, artists were inspired by myths, legends and the direct relationships between people and nature. This joint exhibition by Ateneum and the Norwegian National Museum presents (18.06.2015 - 27.09.2015) major works by leading artist such as Edvard Munch, Gerhard Munthe, Akseli Gallen-Kallela, Hugo Simbergand Theodor Kittelsen.
