Akseli Gallen-Kallela at the Helsinki Art Museum

"Not I - nor anyone else - can create some kind of 'Finland style'. Art is an expression of individuality and it cannot be, as required by the program, a good sample of our countries contemporary taste."

Last week I ended the working week with going to the Helsinki Art Museum in Tennis Palace to see the exhibition Akseli Gallen-Kallela – European master. I went there with my Spanish intern and was happily surprised by the fact that I could tell her a lot about Gallen-Kallela and his art. I always forget that I actually know quite a lot about art because I know that there is so much that I don’t know and would like to know.

This week on the other hand is beginning with fever, so a minimum amount of work for me at least today…
