Ateneum art

Spent my last day of this visit at the Ateneum art museum. There was a huge Modigliani exhibit on, and it was a great escape from the winter weather. This museum is filled with work by extraordinary Finnish artists I've never heard of. The first rooms in the museum were the modern rooms, and I fell in love. Here are some of the paintings and rooms that delighted me today. Enjoy!

This room is just one long wall of self-portraits by famous Finnish artists!

There was a room full of French posters as well. This one is a public health poster about tuberculosis.
