Fokus Gallery: Hannu Väisänen and Schillmark Variations
The exhibition features variations by the visual artist and author Hannu Väisänen (born 1951) of Nils Schillmark’s painting Strawberry Girl (1782). The work at the Ateneum made an indelible impression on the artist as a child. The model for the painting was a girl from a noble family, Ulrika Charlotta Armfelt. When creating the series of works, Väisänen studied the lives of both Schillmark and Armfelt.
