Tove Jansson @ Dulwich Picture Gallery

25 October 2016 - 28 January 2017

One of the most celebrated illustrators of the 20th century, Tove Jansson is known internationally as creator of the Moomin characters and books, a phenomenon which continues to stretch across generations. Her wider outputs of graphic illustration and painting, however, are relatively unseen outside her home country of Finland. Ths retrospective, 150 works, including a large body of self-portraits and paintings never seen before in the UK  reintroduces Jansson as an artist of exceptional breadth and talent, and provides an insightful overview of the key stages of her prolific career. Ultimately, Jansson’s most enduring desire was to be an artist and this exhibition  reveals the unwavering passion that kept her working and exhibiting as an accomplished fine artist alongside her career in graphic illustration.
