Fine Art Auction

Helsinki Spring Sale
22 May 2022

To the catalogue >

International quality of art is the key word when Stockholms Auktionsverk Helsinki presents the Spring Auction!
One of the highlights is Helene Schjerbeck’s piece “Lace Shawl”, an expressive painting with suggestive undertones and an exciting story. From Schjerfbeck’s brush comes another piece of the auction’s highlights. The “French peasant girl” manifests the artist’s ability to capture the innermost essence of the person portrayed. The Spring Auction also offers several paintings by Akseli Gallen-Kallela, including the colorful “Red and white roses”, a close-up depiction of the government’s banqueting hall, Smolna. Gunnar Berndtsson’s masterly self portrait, sculptures by Ville Vallgren and Jussi Mäntynen and bright summer motifs by Albert Edelfelt is a brief summary of what the auction has to offer. As usual, the Arts and Crafts section presents a wide repertoire with everything from a rare coffee pot in silver by Carl Fredrik Borgström to several modern lighting fixtures by Paavo Tynell. Most notable is Johann Fischer’s chandelier in gilded bronze, a truly high-classed piece dated in St. Petersburg 1801.
