Sculptures

Two works by Stockholm artist Johan Tobias Sergel (1740‒1814), the Faun and Amor and Psyche, are some of the finest marble sculptures in the museum. The Finnish Art Society bought the Faun from art dealer M. Couvreur in Paris in 1874 and Amor and Psyche was bought from the estate of the late C.A. Armfelt in October 1930, with lottery funding allocated for this purpose by the government.
