Excursions with Didrichsen Art Museum

Kuusilahdenkuja 1
The Didrichsen Art Museum is the result of a love of art. All pieces are bought by Marie-Louise and Gunnar Didrichsen together. It was important to them that they both liked the artworks. The collection consists of Finnish art from the 20th century among others Edelfelt, Cawen, Schjerfbeck, Sarestoniemi, Linnovaara, Hiltunen and Pullinen. In the modern international art collection there are works by: Picasso, Kandinsky, Miro, Leger, Moore, Giacometti and Arp. «Paintings have always interested us, indeed, shortly after our marriage we bought our first important one, the 'Ateria' (eng. Meal) by Pekka Halonen. At first we collected traditional older Finnish art, but as time went on our interest turned from the older masters to more modern painting.» Finland's only Pre-Columbian art collection is situated in the basement where you also can find the Oriental art. With Pre-Columbian art we understand complex and highly developed American Indian cultures in Mesoamerica and the Andean area of South America from 2000 B.C. to the 14th century A.D. You will find following cultures represented in the collections: Olmec, Jalisco, Colima and Maya. The oriental art collection is dominated by Chinese art from the Shang-dynasty (abt 1500-1028) B.C. to the Ming-dynasty (1368-1644). The collection also includes art from the Far and Near East.
