One centenary has been widely commemorated in London this year, notably with the Royal Academy's Revolution: Russian Art 1917-1932 exhibition. But 2017 also marks 100 years since Finland gained independence from its eastern neighbour. Known in the west for the music of Sibelius, the architecture and design of Alvar Aalto, and for being a country with more saunas than cars, the art of Finland is increasingly gaining international recognition. An exhibition of work by Helene Schjerfbeck and other Finnish women artists recently took place in New York, and London currently sees shows of Tove Jansson and Akseli Gallen-Kallela. Sotheby's is privileged to be offering four works by leading Finnish artists in our 19th Century European Paintings sale on 13 December. All four works in the sale will be exhibited in Helsinki on Thursday 30 November at Snellman Sotheby's International Realty.
