In 1879, Albert Edelfelt’s mother Alexandra Edelfelt rented a summer villa by the sea, on Haikko Manor’s land. This became the artist’s summer home, where he spent a total of 26 summers. Edelfelt loved the Porvoo archipelago and its residents, finding them an inexhaustible source of inspiration. To make working easier, he had a studio built near the villa in 1883.
Today, the studio serves as a museum. Albert Edelfelt painted more than 220 paintings in Haikko, many of which were praised in Paris. Edelfelt died in his beloved Haikko in August 1905, at 51 years of age.
