Tampere Art Museum: "The Power of Brush" 8.10.2022–8.1.2023

The exhibition presents Finnish expressive painting from the golden age to contemporary art. Expressionists who influenced Europe from the beginning of the 20th century expressed subjective emotions and inner experiences in their art. In the paintings, harsh shapes and strong colors were combined with strong brushstrokes.

The exhibition progresses from the expressive, patriotic landscapes of the golden age of the Finnish art and Akseli Gallen-Kallela's African period to the art of the Novemberists of the 1910s and 1920s, Helene Schjerfbeck's modernism that creates inner worlds, Ellen Thesleff's pioneering expressionism, the informalism of the 1960s, the neo-expressionism of the 1980s and the expressive painting of contemporary art. 

The exhibition is made in cooperation with the association of the Finnish Fine Art Foundations. There are total 15 artworks in the exhibition from the Nordea Art Foundation Finland collection.
