Inspired by the von Wright Brothers

Tue  – Sun 

Ateneum Art Museum, Kaivokatu 2, Helsinki

The theme of the Ateneum’s summer season is ‘inspiration’. The exhibition staged in the Fokus gallery looks at works by the von Wright brothers that have inspired, for example, craft enthusiasts and street fashion designers.

Artist brothers Magnus (1805–1868), Wilhelm (1810–1887) and Ferdinand (1822–1906) von Wright liked to depict birds, fish, plants and landscapes in their artworks, based on meticulous natural observation. The familiar and vivid motifs make their works easily accessible.

Ferdinand von Wright’s The Fighting Capercaillies (1886) is the most reproduced artwork in Finland even to this day. It has spread to Finnish homes in countless oil paintings, embroideries and wall hangings.

The von Wright brothers’ works on natural motifs have also inspired contemporary street fashion design.
