Albert Edelfelt

Edelfelt began his education by enrolling in the university in Helsinki but felt their teaching methods were lacking. Next he enrolled in the Antwerp Academy of Art in 1873. After studying historical painting there for six months, he moved to Paris to continue his learning process.Though Edelfelt lived in Paris for 15 years, he visited his hometown of Porvoo on the southern coast of Finland during the summer months. There he could visit with his mother who he remained very close to all of her life. In fact, he died a few years after she passed. You can still make a visit to Edelfelt’s summer studio (www.albertedelfeltinateljee.fi)
