Ateneum is the National Gallery of Finland. The collection features Finnish art from the 1750s to the 1960s and western art from the latter half of the 1800s to the 1950s, including many national treasures. The main exhibition in 2012 presents the art of Helene Schjerfbeck, one of the most beloved Finnish female painters.
The Ateneum Art Museum has the country’s oldest and largest art collection. The new collections exhibition presents well-loved classics alongside seldom-exhibited works of art. It draws new parallels and highlights works that have not been on show for a long time.
