Halosenniemi, wilderness studio of painter Pekka Halonen is situated on the shores of Lake Tuusula. Halosenniemi was built in the Finnish national romantic style and was completed in 1902. Log-built Halosenniemi today functions as an art museum and has been renovated to its original style. The exhibitions, which change a few times a year, feature the works of Halonen and other well-known painters.
Pekka Halonen is known for his depiction of Finnish nature and robust country folk. He studied art in Paris, but lived and worked on the shores of Lake Tuusula for more than three decades. He is best known for his paintings of winter scenery. They were painted outdoors- even in the freezing depths of winter - near his home, Halosenniemi.
The museum is open year-round, but please note that it closed on Mondays outside the summer season. In the summer, a small café and a museum shop are located in the ticket office.
14 May – 8 September 2019
In the summer, Halosenniemi will be filled with women in variable roles: as superb artists and models, inspiring muses, beloved spouses and children, even as seductresses.
Finland had talented female artists in the late 19th century. Besides landscapes and people, the artists depicted everyday chores, children, flowers and compositions. Many paintings portray the ambience, the light or movement delicately and naturally.
Pekka Halonen’s dearest women were his spouse Maija and their daughters, who are depicted in many of his works. The exhibition includes works from Pekka Halonen, Fanny Churberg, Elin Danielson-Gambogi, Albert Edelfelt, Akseli Gallen-Kallela, Eero Järnefelt, Amélie Lundahl, Eero Nelimarkka, Anna Sahlstén, Tyko Sallinen, Helene Schjerfbeck, Venny Soldan-Brofeldt, Ellen Thesleff and Maria Wiik.
