Pyhäpäivä Uudistalossa (Holiday in the new House), 1894

Pekka Halonen

“Pyhäpäivä Uudistalossa”(Holiday in the new House), 1894 Over the summer of 1894, Pekka Halonen painted his bride-to-be’s home region of Karelia. The house has been newly built and the people spend their day of rest in clean clothes looking apathetic. In Kasimir Leino’s opinion the work presents: “This new painting shows a clean corner of the cabin, and three unemployed people sitting on the benches. The men’s faces, especially the elderly, are characteristically Finnish and prettily presented. The house was located in a wilderness of peace and quiet and there Halonen decided to set up his first home after he and Maija were married at the beginning of 1895 – they settled in this region in Komoraan. http://www.alternativefinland.com/art-pekka-halonen/
