Urho Lehtinen - Mutual Support

28.11.2007 - 6.1.2008 Holvi

This autumn arrives with the 120th anniversary of Urho Lehtinen's (1887-1982) birth. We commemorate the artist by directing our gaze at his homestead and the images of his loved ones. His beloved atelier home, Pälvelä, and the beautiful houses and idyllic gardens of the Jyväskylä of his time were documented in his work. The blaze of the blooming garden of Pälvelä brought rich and vibrant colours into his work.
The artist's spouse, Anneli Lehtinen, and his granddaughter Outi Markkanen have participated in the making of the exhibition.
