The Spirit of Finland

Akseli Gallen-Kallela - Karelian Mother (1891)Here's another painting - see Ad Astra below - by "Finland's greatest artist" Akseli Gallen-Kallela: Karelian Mother (1891), a charming impressionistic view of a mother breastfeeding her baby. This painting is featured in a major retrospective Akseli Gallen-Kallela (1865-1931) The Spirit of Finland, which continues until 15 April 2007 at The Groninger Museum in The Netherlands. If you're planning a trip to the Dutch bulb fields this Spring, I think the Groninger is somewhere nearby.
