Masterpieces from Serlachius Museums’ own collection now on show

Serlachius Museums’ new collection hanging Classic Works of Fine Art at the Manor presents works of the Gösta Serlachius Fine Arts Foundation, one of the Nordic countries’ most significant private collections. The permanent hanging opened on 6 April 2019.

One of the collection’s most important artists is Akseli Gallen-Kallela (1865–1931), whose works occupy a central role in the Golden Age of Finnish art of the late 19th century/early 20th century.

Gösta Serlachius (1876–1942), owner of the major Finnish paper company G. A. Serlachius Ltd., amassed a significant art collection and, to preserve it, established in 1933 the Fine Arts Foundation that bears his name. Serlachius was particularly interested in the output of Gallen-Kallela, who is known as the national artist of Finland.

Classic Works of Fine Art at the Manor also presents a substantial set of Helene Schjerfbeck (1862–1946) works, including a series of portraits of men painted in the 1920s. Over the decades, the Fine Arts Foundation has acquired a significant collection of Schjerfbeck’s art.

In the Fine Arts Foundation’s collection, representatives of the Golden Age of Finnish art and early Modernism of the beginning of the 20th century include Albert Edelfelt, Hugo Simberg, Ellen Thesleff, Magnus Enckell, Pekka Halonen, Eero Järnefelt and many others. All in all, the hanging features around 150 works from 100 artists.

An important segment of the hanging consists of a collection of Spanish, Flemish and Dutch art from the 16th and 17th centuries, including works of Francisco de Zurbarán (1598–1664), Juan de Zurbarán (1620–1649) and Jusepe de Ribera (1591–1652).

Museums in the middle of the forest

The Serlachius Museums Gösta and Gustaf form an exceptional museum complex in Finland. The museums are situated in small town in the middle of the forest. In 2014, Art Museum Gösta received alongside it a timber-frame extension, the Pavilion, designed by the Barcelona architecture studio MX_SI.

With addition of the Pavilion, Serlachius Museums have also become a major player in the field of contemporary Finnish art. Each year, the museums present a number of fascinating Finnish and international contemporary art exhibitions. The Serlachius Museums are renowned for their high-quality art collection, which is constantly being supplemented with thoughtful acquisitions.

The Serlachius Museums are open:
in the winter season, 1 September–31 May, from Tuesday to Sunday 11 am–6 pm
in the summer season, 1 June – 31 August, every day 10 am–6 pm.
