From rococo to realism

From rococo to realism

Profane, so-called free art, had its hesitant origin in Finland in the 18th century Isak Wacklin’s rococo portraits and in Nils Schillmark’s paintings, which employed the Neoclassical idiom.

Elias Martin’s landscape paintings documenting the fortification of Viapori represent a unique curiosity from the same period.
