Helene Schjerfbeck ~ Espressionist painter


Finnish painter Helene Schjerfbeck (1862-1946) is most widely known for her realist works and self-portraits, and less well known for her landscapes and still lifes. Throughout her long life, her work changed dramatically.
She was supposedly a Realist, a Romanticist, an Impressionist, a Naturalist, a Symbolist, an Expressionist and a wildly ahead-of-her-time Abstractist.
Helena Sofia Schjerfbeck was born in Helsinki, Finland (then an autonomous Grand-Duchy within the Russian Empire), to Svante Schjerfbeck (an office manager) and Olga Johanna (née Printz). When she was four she suffered a hip injury, which prevented her from attending school. She showed talent at an early age, and by the time she was eleven she was enrolled at the Finnish Art Society Drawing School, where her fees were paid by Adolf von Becker, who saw promise in her. At this School Schjerfbeck met Helena Westermarck.

Sampo Kaikkonen, 1975 ~ Finnish Figurative painter

Sampo Kaikkonen, a Finnish figurative painter living and working in Oulu, Finland. His paintings respect the technique and style of the old masters.
The atmosphere in the paintings is timeless. There are no symbols of specific era and the landscape is universal. Beside the dominant human figures another strong factor in his works is emotion which mediates through his themes, expressions and colors.
