The Ateneum Art Museum in the halls of the art gallery "GL STRAND" holds an exhibition“A modern woman. Artists of the Atheneum Museum ».

The exhibition will comprise more than 50 paintings, drawings and graphic works of the four best artists of modernism: Helen Sherfbek (1862–1946), Sigrid Schauman (1877–1979), Ellen Tesleff (1869–1954) and Elga Cezemann (1922–2007).

The exhibition emphasizes the innovativeness of these authors in European art at the turn of the 20th century and in subsequent decades, reveals the social role of modern women in the midst of social, political and cultural changes of the era. One of the main features of each of the artists is individuality combined with the absence of compromises in creativity and social life, which allowed the authors to make a significant contribution to modern European painting.
