Artist: Kasper Järnefelt
Kasper Järnefelt (1859-1941) was a Finnish art critic, translator for the government and teacher of Russian. He translated works by Leo Tolstoy from Russia, among others and specialized in Henrik Ibsen. He developed into a leading art theorist and literary authority of his generation. But despite his talent, Järnefelt was overshadowed by his famous siblings (a painter, a composer and a judge) and 'lacked the ambition to become something'. He painted small-scale works and only exhibited them publicly from 1894 - 1896 for exhibitions of the Finnish Artists' Association.
