This exhibition introduces the whole picture of the creation of Finland's leading painter Helen Schalfbeck (1862-1946), which has rarely been introduced in Japan.
Schjerfbeck was crippled in an accident at the age of three. He discovered his talent for painting at the age of 11 and in 1880 received a scholarship at the age of 18 to go to the art capital of Paris, where he was exposed to cutting-edge art and was influenced by Manet, Cezanne and Whistler. We also visit Pont-Aven in France and St Ives in England. Returning to Finland, he taught at a drawing school in Helsinki in the 1890s, but moved to Huwinger in 1902 to recuperate from illness. Over the last 15 years, Schjerfbeck's art has evolved significantly, establishing her own modern style.
In the turbulent turmoil of Finland before and after independence, explore the art of the same era as the past, see familiar things, and works that can be said to be the trajectory of Schjerfbeck's soul, who looked deeply at himself.
