Jean with his sister Linda and brother Christian created a talented trio in their youth.
This painting is made by Axel Gallén and it represents Finnish artists of the time; Oskar Merikanto, Axel Gallén, Robert Kajanus and Jean Sibelius. The painting gave a questionable repuration to the men even it was made with good intentions. #Gallén #Merikanto #Kajanus #Sibelius
This portrait is made by Albert Edelfelt after Sibelius moved with his family to Ainola in 1904. The painting is still there reminding of the history. #Edelfelt #Ainola #Sibelius
