The Finnish Virtual Art Gallery on Steam and VIVEport

If you’re interested in Finnish art, you definitely need to check out a VR museum experience called The Finnish Virtual Art Gallery. Or if you’re already a fan of Finnish art, this VR experience is a great way to revisit some of you’re favorite paintings by Finnish artists. The artworks are by artists from the turn of the last century, a period of Finnish national revival and romanticism, when artists such as Albert Edelfelt, Akseli Gallen-Kallela, the Ferdinand brothers, and Helene Schjerfbeck were redefining what Finland is, what the country represents and how it wants to be seen by the world, through their artwork. This period of national romanticism in Finnish art predated the horrors of the War of Independence, the Finnish Civil War, and the Second World War, which lay ahead for Finland in the decades following the country’s independence in 1917. These artworks continue to draw crowds today, and have had a lasting effect on Finnish art and national identity.

The Art Gallery is set in a space station with art galleries, and includes a warehouse and an extra gallery for Mr. Hugo Simberg’s paintings. Here is a list of the artists in alphabetical order:


Ahlstedt, Fredrik
Churberg, Fanny
Edelfelt, Albert
Gallen-Kallela, Akseli
Järnefelt, Eero
Schjerfbeck, Helene
Simberg, Hugo
Wright, Ferdinand von
