This exhibition focuses on Albert Edelfelt’s lesser-known works related to the Russian Imperial family. The centrepiece is a portrait of Alexander III’s nephews, The Grand Dukes Boris and Kirill Vladimirovich as Children (1881) from the Rybinsk Art Museum collection. This painting, long thought to be lost, is being shown for the first time in Finland. Also on display are other captivating portraits of children from the Romanov family. The exhibition includes oil paintings, sketches and letters from the artist. The exhibition has been arranged together with the Finnish Institute in Saint Petersburg. The curator is the institute’s director, Sani Kontula-Webb.
