Tove Jansson was an artist of many talents: she was a painter, author, illustrator and comic artist. She was also one of the best known Finnish artists abroad: the mother of the Moomins.
HAM presents Tove Jansson’s art and life with works from the people of Helsinki’s own art collection. The exhibition will include two of Tove Jansson’s most important works, the frescos Party in the City and Party in the Countryside, and the oil painting Before the Masquerade and sketches made for the murals in the Aurora Children’s Hospital.
Tove Jansson’s life is related with a biography and photographs by her brother Per Olov Jansson.
Tove Jansson and the Moomins are loved by children and adults alike. For the first time in Helsinki, Tove Jansson’s work will now be put on permanent display.
