Among Forests and Lakes: Landscape Masterpieces from the Finnish National Gallery examines how Finnish artists have depicted the landscape of their native country from the 1850s until the present day. The exhibition covers over 800 miles from the coast and archipelago in the south to the Arctic Ocean in the north.

Curated by the Finnish National Gallery’s Senior Researcher Anu Utriainen and Curator Hanne Selkokari, Among Forests and Lakes: Landscape Masterpieces from the Finnish National Gallery shows the sophistication of the Finnish art establishment and the concurrent development of the landscape genre through more than 50 paintings, prints, and video art. The exhibition includes a range of landscape depictions, from idealized views completed in the artist’s studio to realistic scenes painted en plein air (“in the open air”) to visual expressions of the landscape in a modern artistic language. Organized into four themes, the exhibition also considers the role that landscapes played in the creation of nation and national identity.  

Among Forests and Lakes: Landscape Masterpieces from the Finnish National Gallery is organized in collaboration with the Ateneum Art Museum, the Finnish National Gallery. Presentation at the National Nordic Museum has been made possible thanks to the generous support of The Robert Lehman Foundation and Ann-Charlotte Gavel Adams.
