Paris 1909

Sallinen studied in Helsinki at the Drawing School of the Finnish Art Society in 1902 – 1904. He received a grant for travel to Paris: the time spent there in 1909 was formative for his art. In Paris Sallinen absorbed the newest artistic currents and developed into a strong and bold expressionist.
