Moomins return new series 1000

Curated by the Finnish Institue in London and the ICA, this fascinating photographic exhibition looks at the life and work of Finnish artist, write and creator of the Moomins, Tove Jansson (1914-2001). The enchanting Moomins family have been delighting readers since their adventures were first published in the 1940s. Original and rare photographs and material relating to Jansson's life, family and friendships go beyond the Moomins and reveal a highly talented painter and writer of adult fiction. Illustrated books and early first editions of the Moomins are included in the exhibition.
