About the artwork

Surely it must have felt like a small, a really small, uphill climb when Finland in the 1930’s tried to depict itself as a sun and beach paradise.

But we love that kind of cockiness. Of course we have that one month, July that is, when everything in the posters is true. Or…almost at least.

As the tourism propaganda stated in the 1930’s: “The best thing about Finland is the climate.”

To fry yourself on the beach was of course not something given from the start. But when the fashion icon Coco Chanel in 1923 came back from Cannes with a – accidental, it is said – sunburn, it all changed. Soon Hanko (Hangö) caught up with the trend.
Look at the sun loving lady in this Hanko image! The message is clear: Forget about the Riviera, Coco! Come to Hanko instead!
