Tove Jansson
Art, Love and Moomin

10. June - 03. September 2017

Kunstforeningen GL STRAND presents paintings, sketches, drawings and illustrations by Tove Jansson (1914-2001), who was a finnish modernist, painter, writer and illustrator. Jansson is best known as the author of the Moomin books though this exhibition gives an even more varied insight into her body of work from her 1930’s surrealistic paintings to her lyrical works from the 1960’s to 1970’s. The Moomins are explored in an elaborate chapter speaking to both adults and children.

The exhibition is created by Ateneum Finnish Art Gallery in co-operation with Kunstforeningen GL STRAND.
