The Sara Hilden Art Museum features a rich and diverse collection of modern art from all over the world. The museum is housed in a contemporary building designed by local architect Pekka Ilveskoski, in a picturesque location on the Särkänniemi peninsula that overlooks a shoreline of great natural beauty.
Owned by the Sara Hilden Foundation, the museum's art collection features a wide array of works by a large number of notable Finnish artists, as well as exhibition pieces by such internationally recognized modern art masters as Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró and Francis Bacon.
The artistic trends that prevailed during various periods of the 20th century are well represented, including works produced during the Informalism period of the 1960s by Pierre Soulages, Antoni Tápies, Jean Dubuffet, Roger Bissière, Hans Hartung and others.
Kinetic and geometric abstract art are exemplified in the works of such artists as Victor Vasarely, Josef Albers and Serge Poliakoff, to name a few. New Realism is exhibited in the works of Claudio Bravo, Arman, George Segal, Edward Kienholz, Christo and others.
The collection also has artworks by some of the earliest masters of modern art, including Alberto Giacometti, Henry Moore, Paul Klee, Paul Delvaux, Victor Brauner, Giorgio de Chirico, Giorgio Morandi, Yves Tanguy, Graham Sutherland, Aristide Maillol and Georges Rouault - as well as the masters Fernand Léger, Juan Gris and Pierre Bonnard.
