Tove Jansson’s art gets major UK exhibition


The art of Tove Jansson, the Finnish writer, illustator and creator of the cherished Moomin characters, will get a major exhibition next year at the Dulwich Picture Gallery. From 25 October 2017 to 28 January 2018,  the show will include around 150 works from private collections and museums in Finland, as well as drawings of her famous creations that have lain in the British Cartoon Archive until this year. This news comes very close to the hearts of Finns, especially those living in the UK. Tove Jansson, who passed away in 2001, aged 86, is regarded by Finns as a true national treasure.
