  • Good thing Normam to show a painting of Gallen Kallela my favorite painter and friend of Sibelius. he did also a portrait of the genius less famous and more beautiful with a tree on it, for a next article.

  • Quickly…..!

    1) WHO is the artist of the above painting?

    2) What is the title of the painting?

    3) Left to Right…WHO are the four persons pictured?

  • “Finland has endured fairly light losses during the pandemic.”

    Possibly because what we call “social distancing,” the Finns call “normal.” 🙂

    That is a wonderful painting, by the way. I hadn’t heart of it or the artist, because I am a philistine.
