A leading figure in modern Finnish painting, Gallen-Kallela first worked at Lake Keitele, north of Helsinki, in summer 1904. This landscape is his third and most elaborate depiction of the lake, and he exhibited it in Helsinki that same year.The painting, as hung in the gallery, is signed with the Swedish form of the artist's name; in later years he used the Finnish form, as above, by which he is best known today.
