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!
Crunch by Paul Osipow This one is a little dizzying in person. Polydimensional space by Sam Vanni
Rannanjärvi and Isoo-Antti by Unto Pusa
This room is just one long wall of self-portraits by famous Finnish artists!
View from the Lallukka artist home by Birger Carlstedt
LOL WEINERS! The middle one is Bathers by Edvard Munch.
Seated woman with child by Modigliani. This was the only Modigliani I photographed; the place was mauled as it's the end of the exhibit's run.
There was a room full of French posters as well. This one is a public health poster about tuberculosis.
King Hobgoblin Sleeping by Hugo Simberg
King Hobgoblin Sleeping by Hugo Simberg That's it for me from this visit to Helsinki. I tried all week to get a good photo of the train station, but the weather isn't cooperating. Here it is, anyway. Thanks as ever for visiting; see you when I'm back in LA!
