AXEL HAARTMAN – ALI MUNSTERHJELM – SANTERI SALOKIVI
14 Sep 2018 – 20 Jan 2019

Axel Haartman, Ali Munsterhjelm and Santeri Salokivi were not just fellow artists, but also leading figures of impressionism and post-impressionism based colour painting in Turku in the early 1900’s. In accordance with their Parisian teachings, the artists would capture the surroundings without forgetting the social aspects of reality. Munsterhjelm specialised in landscapes and urban art, particularly perspectives of the River Aura, while Haartman focused on still lifes, interiors, human portraiture and landscapes. Of the trio, Salokivi’s favourites were portraits, as well as city landscapes.
