    Akseli Gallen-Kaleva dominates Finnish art.  As a student he portrayed with equal ease the country life of Finland and the bohemian life of Paris: he honeymooned in the wilds of Karelia to a contact with the ancient world of the Kalevala epic setting a trend that Sibelius and others were to follow.  He developed a “national” style and he achieved international fame.  The time has come for a reassessment of their versatile talent, and Time Martin points the way in his lavishly illustrated study.
