A family portrait painted by Tove Jansson, depicting her family during the tense war period. Her mother sits to the far left, and her father stands in the background on the right. Her brothers sit in the foreground. Tove herself stands in the centre but in the background. The atmosphere is somber; everyone looks in different directions.
