Tove JanssonShowing that her body of work consists of far more than just Moomins, the Dulwich Picture Gallery hosts a major exhibition on Tove Jansson this year. One of the most celebrated illustrators of the 20th century, Jansson is known internationally as the creator of the Moomins - more of which can currently be seen at the Southbank Centre's Adventures in Moominland - but her other outputs of graphic illustration and painting are rarely seen outside of Finland. This exhibition will showcase 150 works never before seen in the UK, showcasing the late artist as one of exceptional breadth and talent. The large body of self-portraits and paintings will provide an insightful overview of the key stages of her career and how her unwavering passion to be an artist saw her keep working and exhibiting as an accomplished fine artist alongside her career in graphic installation.
