Ateneum Art Museum presents the exhibition The von Wright Brothers 27 October, 2017 – 25 February, 2018. The artist brothers Magnus, Wilhelm and Ferdinand von Wright, who lived during the period of the Grand Duchy of Finland, are known as painters of landscapes, still lifes and nature subjects, and as scientific illustrators.

The brothers’ works will be accompanied by contemporary art works by photographic artist Sanna Kannisto and the conceptual artist Jussi Heikkilä, whose works bring a contemporary art perspective to the exhibition.
