Arts Everyday Living: An Artist’s Tribute to his Son—the Strength of Love

Askeli Gallen-Kallela, Kaiks Jorma Gallen, 1904, oil on canvas, Private Collection


Askeli Gallen Kallela (1865-1931) is considered one of Finland’s major artists.  Although he created a range of subjects from historical works to landscapes, his portraits are particularly revealing, including his own son Jorma (1898-1939) who became a painter as well.
