150 Years
Eero Järnefelt was one of the most important figures in the golden age of Finnish art. He is best known for capturing the majestic landscapes of Koli and as a master of portraiture. Other themes that were close to his heart included Suviranta, his lakeside atelier home by Tuusulanjärvi, and the surrounding nature, as well as the members of his family. This exhibition presents around 150 works, with his paintings displayed on the third floor of the museum, while his drawings and prints are shown in two exhibition rooms on the ground floor. This year marks the 150th anniversary of the artist's birth.
