The Pro Artibus art collection includes almost 1000 pieces of work. The oldest works originates in the early 1900s and the collection of contemporary art is continually expanding. The collection is based on the art that the Foundation for Swedish Culture in Finland began collecting in 1957. The collection consists mostly of works by Finnish-Swedish artists who represent the modern and contemporary art. Within the collection are various departments such as artists’ self-portraits, Yngve Bäck‘s, Eva Törnwall-Collin‘s and Stig Nyström‘s donations, public works, SFP (Swedish People’s Party) President’s portrait collection as well as works by artists who worked within the framework of the Foundation’s Artist in Residence program.
