This painting, The Wounded Angel, is the most famous by Finnish symbolist painter Hugo Simberg and can be seen along with other of his works at the Didrichsen Art Museum in Helsinki, Finland, during a special exhibit until August 28th. The 1903 painting was voted Finland’s “national painting” by the Ateneum Art Museum in 2006.

When Simberg was commissioned to paint the frescos at Tampere Cathedral in 1905-06, he did a larger version of The Wounded Angel, his favorite painting.
