Great Rodin exhibition!

I visited Art Museum Ateneum to see Rodin. It was as great as usually. Ateneum is easy place to go, well located next to Main Railwaystation.

The old building itself is beautiful, but they have great exhibitions every now and then, too. We went to see Rodin, which (of course) was great. The Japonese (japanese history of arts) exhibition was interesting, too.

I went to the "Tarujen Kansa" exhibition last year co-curated by the Norwegian national museum. Quite apart from the interest of the exhibits, the layout and style were refreshing and original. I can certainly now see how the dark forces of myth influenced Norwegian and Finnish art, as well as music. I was so sorry not to have managed to... More

The museum has the subject Auguste Rodin (10.02.2016). He was a french artist. One of his major work was "The Thinker" or "The door to hell" (La porte de l'enfer).

The best sculptor ever, Rodin, is now in Ateneum. If you have not seen these in Rodin Museum Paris now you have a good reason to visit Ateneum. Rodin had also finnish pupils whose works are also included.

Main attraction at the moment is Henri Cartier-Bresson retrospective photography exhibition, but they always do have an exhibition of seminal Finnish artists too. For example Askeli Gallen-Kallela's Finnish nationalistic masterpieces are always worth a visit.

The first floor was closed during my visit and the 2nd floor was devoted to a famous photographer whose work I did enjoy, but it was not the form of art I was out to see. The 3rd floor had a very limited exhibition also.
