Edelfelt, Albert (1854-1905) - 1886 A Girl Knitting Socks

Oil on canvas. Albert Gustaf Aristides Edelfelt was a Swedish-speaking Finnish painter. Albert Edelfelt was born in Porvoo, Finland. His father Carl Albert was an architect. Edelfelt admired the poet Johan Ludvig Runeberg, who was a friend of the family.

Solveig by Albert Edelfelt

Portrait of a young woman in traditional costume in a rural setting, painted in 1893 by Finnish artist Albert Edelfelt (1854-1905). The 'Solveig' of the title is a common name in several Nordic countries, including Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Iceland. It is of Old Norse origin and means either "Strong House", "Daughter of the Sun" or "the Sun's Path", so we can assume an element of symbolism there (although Edelfelt was not by any stretch a 'symbolist' painter),

Tove Jansson kirjailijana

Tove Jansson on käännetyin suomalaiskirjailija: muumikirjoja luetaan yli kolmellakymmenellä kielellä, ja ne ovat lunastaneet paikkansa maailman satukirjallisuudessa Pikku prinssin, Nalle Puhin ja Astrid Lindgrenin teosten rinnalla. Lisäksi Jansson kuvasi kautta kirjallisen tuotantonsa myös oman aikansa maailmaa ja kirjoitti aikuislukijoille.Muumien piirretty olemus on peräisin 1930-luvulta. Janssonin päiväkirjasta ja akvarelleista isonenäinen otus löysi tiensä 1940-luvulla…

This beautiful portrait of a Finnish woman was salvaged from a 1907 encyclopedia. "The Finnish peasants have high cheek bones, with gray or blue eyes, surprising in their dark faces. Vigorous, hard working, they are tenacious of purpose and serious of mind. This shows the kind of apron, tight bodice, and kerchief and the fondness for a touch of red displayed by the women of that land of white birches and white winters. The paper measures 6.5 x 9 inches and is in excellent condition…

Postikorttien tarinoita

Albert Edelfelt oli suuri Suomalainen taiteilija, joka syntyi Porvoossa 1854 ja kuoli 1905 Haikon kartanossa, vain 51 vuotiaana. Hän on kautta maailman hyvin tunnettu. Myös postikorttien piirtäjänä hän tuli tunnetuksi, mutta nykyään hänen jokaisesta työstään on painettu postikortteja. Albert Edelfel halusi kuvata monipuolisesti kansan elämää. Kuvat joita olen korteillani löytänyt on maalattu enimmäkseen 1880-1890. Leikkiviä poikia rannalla 1884. Eklöfin pojat Villa Sjökullan kuistilla…
