► Ellen Thesleff (1869–1954) is an iconic figure in Finnish art history. This book charts the evolution of her engaging style from her early symbolist works through to the colour-drenched expressionism and near-abstract style of her later career. The narrative highlights the places that played a significant role in her life: the renaissance city of Florence and her idyllic lake retreat in the village of Murole, Ruovesi. A large number of paintings and prints by Thesleff are found in the collection of the Gösta Serlachius Art Foundation.
Gösta’s Little Art Library is series of publications produced by the Serlachius Museums featuring Gösta Serlachius’s favourite artists and gems from his exquisite collection.
