Product story

Starting with the year 1809, the storylines run through to the seventies. In addition, it covers the story of the Ateneum building itself as the center of the Finnish art scene for the last 127 years, not only the home of collections but also of two significant art schools. The catalogue offers readers sixteen newly commissioned thematic articles written by museum specialists along with five short stories by contemporary Finnish author.
