Virtual guided tour: In the artists’ footsteps

This virtual guided tour takes participants on a trip to the world of the Stories of Finnish Art exhibition, with the help of a rich visual presentation. Led by a guide, the tour introduces participants to key works in the Ateneum collection and the artists behind them, who travelled in Finland and abroad to study or work, more than a hundred years ago.

In those days, travelling was slow, and the virtual guided tour reflects this by giving people time to explore the works in peace and dig below the surface. Where did Helene Schjerfbeck create her painting The Convalescent? And how did Albert Edelfelt’s esteemed painting come into being?

The tour is provided to participants as a guide-led session on Microsoft Teams. There is no need to download the Teams application: you can join the tour using a browser. You can participate in the tour as a group or individually from your own workstation, following the link we provide.

To participate in a virtual guided tour, you need a network connection with a minimum speed of 10 Mbit/s, or a 4G connection. Recording the virtual guided tour is prohibited.
