In the shade of the forest
17 September – 8 December 2020
Nature and forests were a great source of inspiration for artist Pekka Halonen. Over time, Halonen's landscapes delved ever deeper into the shade of the forest and into depicting details. The atmosphere of autumn's exhibition is mainly set by Halonen's art from the late 19th century to the 1930s.
