About this Item

This gorgeous book on Akseli Gallen-Kallela, 1865-1931, traces his development as an artist into a national figure in Finland, but also from a mischievous young man to a captivating man of the world. The realistic paintings of Gallen-Kallela depict Finnish landscapes, customs and the traditional way of life. The Paris paintings tell about the living cultural ties of the Finns. The Kalevala paintings resound with the national romantic pathos, embedded in the Kalevala, the Finnish epic poem, which brought to life the desires of a small nation for independence.This book contains 8 pages of original lithographs in the center of the book.
