This tour is for history lovers, especially dedicated to all those who are interested in Finnish Golden age artists. Akseli Gallen-Kallela, Ville Vallgren, Albert Edelfeldt… they came to Paris in seek of inspiration at the time when Paris was “the Mecca of Art”. We immerse ourselves in the Paris of the 19th century, where one heard the sound of horses’ hooves making their way on the Parisian pavement. We’ll recall the famous salons where the artists exposed their works, the cafés and bars where they would gather to drink even more than necessary.

The stories will be peppered with amusing anecdotes on the look, the way of life and the friendships of all these artists we know so well who lived and loved passionately in the city of Enlightenment.
