Yup.

Not sure what to call his style...national romantic naïvism of sorts?

Hmmyeah, maybe, but lack depth they do not.

The frescoes in the National Museum ceiling are sort of a greatest hits
showcase of Gallen-Kallela's whole Kalevala idea world - and truly awe-
inspiring.

Here he is in 1928, looking a bit crazy  chuckle.gif  
in the early stages of the work at the Museum:

OK...last day touristing in beautiful Helsinki.
Spent it, so far, taking in the absolutely fantastic
jugend/art noveau fairy tale milieu around our hotel

Photographs don't really cut it, has to be experienced
first hand, but here's a few good ones:

Sucks to hop on the train North and leave both love and city chuckle.gif

...but country boy needs to return to his redneck clan
and backwater 1-horse town in dark, menacing, cave man Pohjola wave.gif

Had a swell time, cheers! cheers.gif

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice
