Tove Jansson exhibition at Dulwich Picture Gallery, England

October 25, 2017 - January 31, 2018

Tove Jansson exhibition is touring in Europe from autumn 2016 onwards. In 2014, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Tove Jansson, the exhibition was held in Helsinki at the Art Museum Ateneum. Over 300 000 people visited the exhibition in Finland and during 2015 the touring exhibition in Japan delighted over 260 000 visitors in total of five museums. The Europe tour will begin from Millesgården in Stockholm, Sweden in October 2016.

After Sweden and Denmark, the exhibition will be held at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, London, England.

The exhibition covers all the periods in Tove Jansson’s (1914–2001) productive career, including her surrealistic paintings of the 1930s, modernist art of the 1950s and more abstract works in the 1960s and ‘70s, as well as her satirical anti-war illustrations for the magazine Garm, her monumental paintings for public spaces, and of course Moomin characters and stories.
