Karl Hedman’s art collection book contains 970 art pieces, of which basic facts are presented as well as provenance (=origin history), attribution (=artist identification) and comparison, literature and culture historical data. The work specific pictorial essays open a many-sided art and culture historical view to the art works of the collection.
The Karl Hedman art collection consist of a large collection of old European art painting and an exhaustive survey of the golden age of Finnish art, with its central element - the so called Stenman pledge – art dealer Gösta Stenman’s personal art collection, which he, due to his unsuccessful business transactions, had to hand over to Karl Hedman.
The collection catalogue consisting of 920 pages is edited by museum director Marianne Koskimies-Envall and region art museum researcher Jaakko Linkamo. The demanding photographing work is made by curator Erkki Salminen. The research work and writing of the articles are made by Marianne Koskimies-Envall and the layout and paging design by Jaakko Linkamo.
