Arts and popular culture

Arts had an important role in the development of national identity in the turn of the 19th and 20th century. Nature and landscapes were constantly portrayed in paintings, compositions and poetry. Nature has also nowadays a significant role in contemporary visual arts, as demonstrated by many Finnish artists engaging in environmental and land art, for example, as well as in popular culture ranging from schlager songs to reproduced household imagery.
