Amos Anderson Art Museum

POI: 60.168333, 24.937222
Amos Anderson Art Museum (Finnish: Amos Andersonin taidemuseo, Swedish: Amos Andersons konstmuseum) is a museum in Helsinki, Finland. It is the largest private art museum in Finland.
History
The museum was founded by Amos Anderson, the owner of the Swedish-language Hufvudstadsbladet newspaper and a patron of the arts. In 1913, Anderson commissioned architects W. G. Palmqvist and Einar Sjöström to design a building on Yrjönkatu. The building would function as both Anderson's private living quarters and office space for his businesses. After Anderson's death in 1961, the building was converted into a museum which opened its doors to the public in 1965.
Collections and exhibitions
Amos Anderson Art Museum's collections include primarily 20th-century art, with some of the oldest works originally belonging to Amos Anderson's personal collection. The museum has paintings by Francesco Bassano (Adoration of the Magi), Paul Signac, Louis Valtat, Roger Fry, Alfred Finch (View of Fiesöle), Ragnar Ekelund, Magnus Enckell, Eero Nelimarkka, Tyko Sallinen, Tove Jansson (Fantasy), and the Swedish painter Palm. In its acquisitions the museum concentrates on contemporary art. The museum arranges 8–12 exhibitions a year.
Future plans
In 2013 the museum announced plans to build a subterranean annex under the Lasipalatsi plaza, located near the museum's premises on Yrjönkatu. The annex is estimated to cost 50 million euros and will also use facilities above the ground in the Lasipalatsi building. Helsinki City Board decided to reserve the plot for the museum in December 2013. The funding is provided by the Finnish-Swedish arts foundation Konstsamfundet. The museum plan was unanimously approved by the Helsinki City Council in May 2014 and the new annex was scheduled to open in 2017. The new annex is designed by JKMM Architects whose other works include the new libraries in Turku and Seinäjoki and the Finnish pavilion at the 2010 Shanghai World Expo. The construction of the new museum started in January 2016. The museum, which will be called Amos Rex, is currently expected to open in 2018.
