Bibendum
Among the pieces exhibited, Vallgren's portrait (1886) and Edelfelt's bust illustrate the friendship between these two artists. Paintings by Johan Knutson (1816-1899), portraits by Nils Schillmark (1754-1804) and Iris ceramics and furniture (between 1897 and 1902) influenced by Art Nouveau are also on display. The designer of this furniture, Louis Sparre (1863-1964), hired Alfred William Finch (1854-1930) as draughtsman in the ceramics workshop. Temporary exhibitions next door in Vanha Kappalaisentalo/Gamla Kaplansgården.
