One of Finland’s foremost landscape painters Victor Westerholm (1860-1919) has a strong connection to Nagu which is often bypassed. His parents originated from Nagu and his first drawings and paintings depicted landscapes from the island.

Works of Westerholm’s art depicting the archipelago are shown in the exhibit. Some of the art pieces originate from private collections and have not previously been seen by the public. The exhibition also includes selected works by contemporary Finnish artists to create an interesting interplay with Westerholm’s paintings – together they form contrasts, open up new horizons and meanings, furthermore, they complement each other. History is reflected in the present.
