► Lauri Laine (born 1946) is one of the most significant and internationally known Finnish painters of his generation. The large and imposing abstract works of this artist working in Helsinki and Rome are inspired by the Italian and Spanish Renaissance and depictions of light and space in Baroque painting. This richly illustrated book explores the background of Laine’s work, placing it in the international context of contemporary painting.
