Finland, Part 2 - the Art of Albert Edelfelt

Albert Edelfelt (1854-1905) was a Finnish painter of Swedish descent who was a big proponent of Finland's culture prior to its independence from Russia in 1918.  Google him some time and treat yourself to some of his work.  For our purposes, I am focusing mostly on his academic nudes, but trust me, his other work is worth the time for a look.  This photo is by Daniel Nyblin.
