Masters of the Golden Age of Finnish art exhibited

In Joenniemi Manor the classics of the Gösta Serlachius Fine Arts Foundation are now exhibited, as well as the works that are frequently requested by the visitors.

The exhibition shows the most beloved art works of the Gösta Serlachius Fine Arts Foundation. Gösta´s pearls chains the works of Finnish golden age of art with modernism.

In the exhibition rooms we travel from shadow to light, from depictions of peasant life to international ambience, from the grace of the female figures to delicacy of the floral arrangements. The exhibition opens new viewpoints into looking at art by making surprising parallels.

The roots of the art collection reach G.A. Serlachius, who was the first tycoon of paper industry in Mänttä, and his interest in art. He was the patron of artist Akseli Gallen-Kallela as well as of sculptor Emil Wikström.

The nephew of the tycoon, director Gösta Serlachius upheld his uncle´s interest in art and established in 1933 the fine art foundation carrying his own name. The art collection is actively augmented further. It is now one of the largest private art collections in Scandinavia.
