The works of Tove Jansson (1914–2001) are amongs the most cherished pieces in the HAM collection. HAM has dedicated some of its galleries to an exhibition of the artist’s life and works.

In the new hanging, Jansson’s frescos Party in the City and Party in the Country and her sketches of murals for the Aurora Children’s Hospital are now joined by two Tove’s murals, Rest After Work and Electricity, which were made for the Pitäjänmäki factory of the Strömberg company. During the exhibition, the public had an opportunity to follow the conservation of Electricity. The conservation of the piece was made possible by support from Moomin Characters Ltd.

The new hanging includes also lamps by designer Paavo Tynell, which were featured in the original venue of the frescos, the Kaupunginkellari restaurant in Helsinki.

Event organizer

HAM

HAM Helsingin taidemuseo pitää huolta helsinkiläisten omasta taidekokoelmasta, johon kuuluu yli 9000 teosta. Lähes puolet kokoelmasta on kaupunkilaisten ilona puistoissa, kaduilla, virastoissa, terveysasemilla, kouluissa ja kirjastoissa. Tennispalatsiin keskittyvissä näyttelyissään HAM tuo esille modernia taidetta ja nykytaidetta. Tammikuusta 2016 lähtien Tove Janssonin juhla-aiheiset freskot ovat pysyvästi esillä HAMissa.
