Summary note
Akseli Gallen-Kallela (1865?1931) was a master of the golden age of Finnish art. The industrialist and art patron Gösta Serlachius was a great admirer and passionate collector of his art. Based near the artist in the forestry hub of Mänttä, Serlachius kept a close eye on his friend?s triumphant career as he progressed from vignettes of country life through Parisian Realism to epics portrayals of The Kalevala, in which he blends National Romanticism and Symbolism. In the late 19th century Gallen-Kallela built a studio in the wilderness of Ruovesi, Mänttä?s neighbouring parish. It was there that he created his Kalevala-themed masterpieces and his first experimental graphic prints.00Gösta?s Little Art Library is series of publications produced by the Serlachius Museums featuring Gösta Serlachius?s favourite artists and gems from his exquisite collection.
