Helene Schjerfbeck - Unveiling the Unseen
The reputation of one of the most important figures in Finnish art history, Helene Schjerfbeck (1862-1946), is growing constantly, both in Finland and abroad.
As an artist, Schjerfbeck made no attempt to produce an illusion of reality, but was interpreting her own inner feelings from very early on, and advanced systematically along the path she had chosen.
The more than 50 works in the exhibition take us on a journey through this artist’s production. The earliest work shown is The Wounded Soldier from 1880, when Schjerfbeck was only 18 years old. The endpoint of the journey is the very last work that she ever produced, Three Pears on a Plate from 1945. There are also several repetitions of various themes, such as the self-portraits, which the artist returned to repeatedly.
Unveiling the Unseen is based on the touring exhibition already shown at The Tikanoja Art Museum in Vaasa and at Malmö Art Museum in Sweden. Apart from the works on loan, this exhibition, for the first time, also includes all the 19 works by Helene Schjerfbeck belonging to the Didrichsen Museum of Art and Culture.
Muss auch irgendwie sein... (Finnische Künstler kenne ich nicht, aber Architekten, die Künstler sind)
