DIDRICHSEN 55 – JUBILEE EXHIBITION
5.9.2020–9.5.2021

The Didrichsen 55th jubilee exhibition presents favourites as well as rarely seen central artworks from the museum’s collection. The works are on display in the living room of Villa Didrichsen and downstairs in the exhibition wing.

The collection of around one thousand artworks in the Didrichsen Art Museum is a result of active collecting during several decades. The majority of the works have been acquired by museum founders Gunnar and Marie-Louise Didrichsen for their personal enjoyment. In the beginning, the emphasis on acquisitions were on Finnish visual arts from the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. From 1960s onwards the couple´s interest towards Finnish and international modernism increased and they acquired works from artists such as Helene Schjerfbeck, Wassily Kandinsky, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, Mark Rothko, Alberto Giacometti and Niki de Saint Phalle. The work by Rothko is assumedly the only Rothko in Finland.
 

In addition to visual arts the collections consist of artefacts from ancient cultures. The museum holds the only Pre-Columbian collection in Finland, with unique items from Mexico, Central America and the Andes.
