Albert Edelfelt

Albert Edelfelt was one of the leading painters of what is known as the Golden Age of Finnish art, in the late 19th and early 20th century. His paintings were more polished and traditional in style than many of his Finnish contemporaries. They used many of the techniques of the impressionists, including the use of pure colors and painting done in the open air. His best paintings have the same luminosity of impressionism, but also a more penetrating precision and psychological realism that captures the beauty of everyday life.
