Albert Edelfeltin Atelje

Albert Edelfeltin Atelje Review

Near Porvoo in Haikko stands the studio of the painter Albert Edelfelt. Edelfelt was born into a well-to-do Swedish-speaking family in 1854 and was one of the first Finnish painters to find international fame. He introduced the Realist movement to his native country and was active in encouraging young aspiring artists to find success in Paris. In this studio he completed some 220 of his works, and it's here where he died in 1905, surrounded by the beautiful landscape that inspired so many of his works.
