About the artwork

In 1930 the artist duo Göran Englund and Gunnar Forsström captured the maritime Helsinki with the Cathedral in the background. The poster was published in several different languages, at least in German, Finnish, Swedish, English and French. Who said Finland wasn’t international already back then?

This thing about the Helsinki Cathedral is by the way quite interesting. There is no other building in the whole nation depicted so often in travel posters. A few years ago, when we asked the tourist information in Helsinki what a modern poster for today’s Helsinki should depict the answer came immediately: ”The cathedral, please.”
