- About Ateneum
Ateneum’s collection display presents a broad selection of art, with special emphasis on Akseli Gallen-Kallela, Helene Schjerfbeck and Hugo Simberg. The Simberg cabinet offers the chance to view the artist’s infrequently exhibited gouache and watercolour paintings. Precisely adjusted lighting conditions allow these light-sensitive works to be presented as part of the collection display for the first time.
Under the heading FOKUS smaller thematic exhibitions are presented that focus on a particular work of art, artist or subject.
The collection display also features a fact wall with more information about the museum’s collections and its activities as an art institution.
Its status as a national gallery requires the Ateneum Art Museum to lend its works to other museums in Finland and abroad, and this is one of the reasons why the selection of works on display in Ateneum varies to some extent.
