Artist's life - Pekka Halonen's Snowy Slope through the eyes of children
12 January – 24 January 2021
Pekka Halonen's beloved Snowy Slope has fascinated people for 120 years. Schoolchildren from Tuusula made their own versions of the classic painting and those drawings are on display in Halosenniemi together with the original painting. The exhibition also features other paintings by Pekka Halonen and photographs from the family album.
Painters Pekka Halonen (1865–1933) and Albert Gebhard (1869–1937), who befriended each other during their studies, are artists of the Finnish Golden Age. The exhibition presents full-blooded depictions of folk life and Finnish landscapes.
Finnish state scholarship holders, so cheers!
