Much of the work of the eminent realist painter Albert Edelfelt (1854-1905) is based upon themes associated with the life of the Finnish people and his native countryside (The Laundresses, Pines in Borga, Fishermen at Sea).

Edelfelt also enjoyed considerable success in the field of portrait painting, an example of which is his Portrait of M. Geirot.

The German school is represented by works of Franz Stuck (1863- 1929) – Fight for a Woman (1905) and Hans Toma (1839-1924) – Adam and Eve (1897).

In this room is also displayed The Dwarf Gregorio by the Spanish artist Ignacio Zuloaga (1870-1946).
