Exhibition “The Dance of Colours: Finnish Modernist Art”

This exhibition presents the works of Alvar Cawén, Väinö Kunnas, Jalmari Ruokokoski, Tyko Sallinen, Yrjö Ollila and other well-known Finnish Modernist painters of the first decades of the 20th century. They were rebels and explorers in the art scene of that time who sought to express the artist’s inner experiences and made their own creative choices instead of turning to the politically charged National Romantic style.

The artworks by Finnish artists of the early 20th century from the Art Museum of Estonia collection have been placed in a broader context of the artists’ oeuvres and Finnish Modernism.
