“My landlord continues to get drunk three times a week, and then he makes the most awful noise.” … “Otherwise he is a very decent fellow, and has been entrusted with many municipal duties.” – Hugo Simberg in a letter to his twin brother, Paul, in 1895.
This occurred when Hugo went to study with artist Gallen-Kallelain further north in Finland. The living conditions were much more rugged and there were no social amenities. Ruovesi was the town where Hugo moved to work with his art teacher.
It was living further north which unleashed Hugo’s imagination. There was no city to distract him. He was instead communing with the Finnish wilderness and the lesser daylight experienced there as winter approaches. Simberg painted two of his key works in that first autumn further north: "Frost" and "The Fairy-Tale I". That rugged nature meshed with his interior fantasy world and artistic aims. The result was his own unique style and subjects.
