Artists at Önningeby, Åland

The best place in the world to paint presented artist community in Önningeby, Åland
Collegiality between artists began in France and developed into a versatile international phenomenon during the 1870s. A colony of Finnish and Swedish artists emerged in Önningeby, Åland, during the summers at the end of the 19th century. Önningeby's artist community has often emerged when reading artist biographies. Last summer, I read about Elin Danielson-Gambogi, who was a frequent visitor in Önningeby. Here I show you some of her works. She married Italian painter Raffaello Cambogi and lived the rest of her life in Italy.

I was interested especially of the art of Elin Danielson-Gambogi and her and Dora Wahlroos' wild triangle drama. It happened that Dora, who had come to visit Elin in Italy fell in love with Raffaello, Elin's husband. The sharp fictional correspondence about this drama was fantastic reading in a recent Finnish novel.

To my delight, several works by Danielson-Gambogi were on display. 
This large size portrait of Hanna Westerholm was gorgeous. 
The hair was like living human hair! 

Next to the Danielson-Gambogi's screen, a portrait of her by J. A. G. Acke, 1887

Underneath two Elin Danielson-Gambogi’s works that I have seen elsewhere.

Two general views from the exhibition and works of other artists.

The lyrics of this folk song from Åland are in Swedish and they say:
Who can sail without wind, Who can row without oars,
Who can be separated from a friend without tears?

  1. ...beautiful portraits, but what I found interesting is that so many of the women were smoking cigarettes. How times have changed and for the better. The portrait of Hanna Westerholm is indeed gorgeous! A wonderful song with a bit of a haunting feel. Thanks Riitta for sharing, enjoy your week.

  2. Guten Morgen Riita,
    diese Künstlerkolonie scheint ähnlich zu sein, wie "unser" Worpsweder hier. Natürlich vom Stil her ganz anders.
    Sehr schöne Bilder sind das und deine Aufnahmen lassen einen Einblick geben.
    Das schwedische Volkslied kenne ich, ich habe das schon einmal bei einer schwedischen Hochzeit hier gehört.

    Bei uns ist es auch sehr sehr stürmisch. Die Leute kommen gar nicht zur Arbeit, weil der
    Bus- und Bahnverkehr eingestellt wurde.

    Liebe Grüße Eva
    die dir eine gute Woche wünscht.

  3. I thought so too (like Tom) when I saw the women smoking. Very unusual, especially for that time.

    Beautiful pictures, painted so realistically, thanks for sharing this moment.

    Greetings and a good start into the new week


  4. So beautiful paintings and music, have enjoyed them. I think, smoking was a sign of emancipation in earlier time -
    Send you a big sunshine

    The woman's hair is a real artwork in itself.
