Tove Jansson exhibition started touring in Europe in autumn 2016. 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 began from Millesgården in Stockholm, Sweden in October 2016 and continued to Gothenburg, Sweden and Copenhagen, Denmark. Now the exhibition is 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.
