Sommer’s here at Scandinavia House! Stop by on a Thursday evening to enjoy extended gallery hours of our celebrated exhibition, Independent Visions. Stay for a glass of wine on our outdoor terrace, and listen to incredible jazz performances from some of Scandinavia’s most talented young musicians, composers, and singers.
The exhibition Independent Visions: Helene Schjerfbeck and Her Contemporaries, from the Collection of Ateneum, Finnish National Gallery presents fifty-five works by four celebrated Finnish artists: Helene Schjerfbeck (1862–1946), Sigrid Schauman (1877–1979), Ellen Thesleff (1869–1954), and Elga Sesemann (1922–2007). Coinciding with the year long celebration of the centennial anniversary of Finland’s independence from Russia, the exhibition provides a rich opportunity for American audiences to engage with these influential Finnish painters.
