Akseli Gallen-Kallela was born in Pori in western Finland in 1865. As a child he developed a deep love of the Finnish countryside. From 1878 he enrolled in drawing classes in Helsinki, and like many art students at the time, he continued his training in Paris. Gallen-Kallela maintained an international outlook throughout his career and exhibited widely in the major cities of Europe. His Lake Keitele pictures, painted between 1904 and 1906, fuse diverse international trends such as painting outdoors directly in front of the subject, and the decorative abstraction of Symbolism.
