The main focus is on the artworks of Finnish artists Werner Holmberg and Fanny Churberg, as well as those by Victoria Åberg. and Magnus and Ferdinand von Wright. Essential material for comparison is provided by studying works by the German artists Johann Wilhelm Schirmer and Calr Friedrich Lessing, and by the Norwegian artists Hans Gude and August Cappelen. In the case of Finnish lanscape art, many artists were guided by the work and writings of Zacharias Topelius.
