Documenting in detail the achievements of a major Finnish artist and designer whose oeuvre represents a distinctive synthesis of Symbolist, Art Nouveau and Expressionist elements, this catalogue features fine illustrations of more than 350 paintings, drawings, prints, reliefs and decorative objects produced by Gallen-Kallela (1865-1931) over the course of his career, including portraits, landscapes, genre studies and depictions of scenes from the Finnish national epic, the Kalevala. An extensive biographical chronology supplements nine essays discussing such topics as Gallen-Kallela's early realist works and his studies in Paris, the symbolic imagery of his Kalevala canvases, his accomplishments as a portraitist and printmaker, and his influential role in the development of Finnish decorative arts.
