An introduction to notable Finnish women artists of the modern era

This exhibition, marking 100 years of diplomatic relations between Japan and Finland, showcases the work of female artists who revolutionized the Finnish modern art scene between the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Around 90 pieces by seven female artists are on display, including Helene Schjerfbeck, who has been featured at other exhibitions in Japan, and Sigrid af Forselles, a sculptor who studied under Auguste Rodin and assisted him in the creation of his famous piece ― The Burghers of Calais. The event is the first of its kind in Japan, looking at the varied activities and achievements of artists who strived throughout their lives to create their own modes of artistic expression, through paintings, sculptures and other works.
