Tove Jansson on the island of Bredskär in 1950. Tove and Lars Jansson bought the island and built a house called Vindrosen (The Wind Rose) in 1947. The whole family moved in except for Tove’s brother Per Olov Jansson (who also took this photo), since he already had a cottage on a nearby island. In post-war Finland, building material was hard to come by and among other things, nails were pulled out and straightened from old planks to make the building possible.

Tove Jansson, creator of the Moomins but also an amazing painter. Just saw her centenary exhibition at the Ateneum Museum in Helsinki today, and I'm blown away.
