Description:
PROPERTY FROM THE COLLECTION OF J.E. SAFRA Eero Järnefelt FINNISH SUNSET OVER A LAKE Eero Järnefelt 1863 - 1937 signed and datedE. Järnefelt. 1894. lower left gouache andgold paint on paper 74 by 47cm., 29 by 18½in Provenance Sale: Sotheby's, London, 27 March 1990, lot 71 Purchased at the above sale by the present owner Catalogue Note Breath-taking in its plunging perspective and crepuscular hues, the present work probably presents a view over Lake Pielinen near Koli in eastern Finland, a subject which Järnefelt made his own. In numerous formal aspects the work defies the conventions of western art, pointing instead to the influence of Japanese prints. Notable features are the vertical format, bird\’s eye view looking down on the lake and islands, heightened colours, high horizon line, stylised trees along the lower border, and even the gouache medium rather than the more conventional oil on canvas. As demonstrated by the recent touring exhibition in Helsinki, Oslo, and Copenhagen, the form and character of Nordic art of the latenineteenth century bore the indelible imprint of \‘Japanomania\’, as each artist approached the new possibilities that Japanese visual culture appeared to offer. On the other hand the present work could not be more quintessentially Finnish.Dramatic viewsover Finland's lakessuch as Albert Edelfelt\’s Kaukola Ridge at Sunset (fig. 1) encouraged the younger generation of artists to look afresh at the Finnish landscape, as they dreamt of their country\’s independence from Russia. Late nineteenth-century Finnish art was strongly informed by nationalist and Symbolist currents. Dominated by Sweden for almost six hundred years, Finland passed under the rule of the Russian Empire in 1809 and gained its independence only in 1917. Social dissatisfaction and disillusionment over Russian rule was widespread, and young artists sought a new pictorial vocabulary to express their Finnish identity. Born in Vyborg, his father Finnish and mother from the Russian noble Clodt von Jürgensburg family, Järnefelt was brought up speaking Finnish at a time when the Swedish language still carried greater prestige. Born Erik, he Finnicised his name to Eero, just as his fellow artist Axel Gallén laterrenamed himself Akseli Gallen-Kallela. Steeped in Russian literature and culture, he studied at theSt Petersburg academy under his uncle, and later travelled to Italy and Paris with Gallen.Järnefelt's mother Elisabeth, regarded as \‘the mother of Finnish art and culture\’ led the so-called \‘Järnefelt school\’ of literary salons, which also encompassed contemporary political questions. Järnefelt first visited Koli in North Karelia in 1892, two years before painting the present work. The leading artistic personalities of Järnefelt\’s generation, from Jean Sibelius to Akseli Gallen-Kallela, looked to Karelia as a lost paradise, and an embodiment of the authentic soul of Finland. There Elias Lönnrot had collected much of the oral folklore published as the national epic Kalevalaearlier in the century. 1893 saw the first performance of the Karelia Suite by Sibelius, which remains amongthe composer's most celebrated works.Sibelius was Järnefelt\’s brother-in-law through his sister Aino, and the two menwere close friends. The journey that the composer and artist undertook to Koli in 1909 inspired Sibelius\’ Fourth Symphony, dedicated to Järnefelt.

Objektsbeskrivning EERO JÄRNEFELT 1863-1937 View from Koli Inscribed "Koli", by the artist Authenticated on the reverse with a stamp of the artist´s deceased estate signed by Laura Järnefält 1904-1885), the artist´s daughter, and Ivar Hörhammer (1884-1953), the gallerist and artdealer. Charcoal and watercolour, 465 x 371 mm. Folded flaps, each 65 and 26 mm., on the two vertical sides The view is taken from Ukko-Koli, Mäkrä the most well-known vantage point in Koli with a grand view to the East over lake Pielinen (Pielisjärvi). The peak of the hill is situated 247 m. above the sea level and 243 m. above the lake. The vantagepoint is of national fame in Finland through Järnefelt´s picture "Autumn Landscape of Lake Pielisjärvi", from 1899 which was used for a National telegram which helped to define the national sense of landscape (Ateneum, Helsinki). Koli, since 1991 a National Park, is situated c. 500 km. northeast of Helsinki in Finnish North Karelia close to the border to Russia. Eero Järnefelt made his first trip to the area around Koli in 1892 together with the writer Juhano Aho (before 1908 Johannes Brofelt) and Aho´s wife, the painter Venny Solda-Brofelt on their journey to Finnish Karelia. Emerging towards the end of the 19th century, Karelianism was a trend inspired by Karelia and the ancient Finnish lifestyle. The quest for Finnish roots and the national identity under Russian rule took people to the areas rich in Karelian poetic and singing traditions. Soldan-Brofelt describes the landscape in her travel journal: "We stayed on the slope of Koli Hill for a while. The scenery was fabulous: the meadows, pastures, trails of smoke in the evening sun, the hills looming in the distance." Aho himself was inspired by Koli for his novel Panu, published in 1898, which describes the struggle between Paganism and Christianity in Finland. Järnefelt continued to visit the area regularly until 1936. In 1909 Järnefelt visited Koli together with his brother-in-law, the great Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. Sibelius´s fourth symphony, first perfomed in 1911, was partly inspired by his trip to Koli. Sibelius dedicated it to Järnefelt. Whilst at Koli Sibelius wrote in his diary: "Never have I felt as Finnish as in Vienna, Italy and Paris. Never have I felt as Parisian as on Lake Pielinen". Together with A.W. Finch and Ilmari Aalto, Järnefelt painted a large scene of Koli in 1911 for the restaurant of Helsinki railway station, perhaps as an hommage to Sibelius´s symphony.

provenance:hjalmar andrée (by 1927); thence by descent to the previous owner sale: falkloos, malmö, 15 november 1997, lot 243 purchased at the above by the present owner eero järnefelt's depiction of nature was inspired by the plein-air realism that he encountered whilst in france and the work of his fellow countryman albert edelfelt. having studied at the academy of art in st. petersburg (1883-6) and at the academie julian in paris (1886-91), on his return to finland järnefelt's landscapes of the early 1890s reflected his renewed interest in the karelian movement. led by akseli gallen-kallela the karelianists were united in the belief that the ancient origins of finland's national epic, the kalevala, lay in the eastern part of finland. although there are traces in järnefelt's work of the national romanticism that would dominate finnish art in the latter part of the decade, and which asserted the independent spirit of the finnish nation, järnefelt shunned the more radical tendencies of this symbolist style. instead, as expressed in the calm mysticism of the present work, he championed the sense of the idyllic finnish landscape.
