– Väinö Blomstedt visiting Pekka Halonen

Halosenniemi Museum
3.5.–29.8.2021

Spring 2021 marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of artist Väinö Blomstedt (1871–1947). Pekka Halonen (1865–1933) and Blomstedt became friends during their studies at the Finnish Art Society’s Drawing School in 1888. They continued their studies together in Paris and Italy and became some of the most celebrated Finnish artists of their time. This exhibition presents an extensive selection of works from both artists.
