The Gallen-Kallela Museum participates in the Flickr Commons

The Gallen-Kallela Museum participates in The Commons on Flickr to share the unique photographic collection of artist Akseli Gallen-Kallela with a wider audience and to encourage the study, use and remixing of the images in imaginative ways. Among the collection there are also undated and unidentified pictures. The museum invites viewers to identify persons and places, situations and dates by commenting on the images.

The Gallen-Kallela Museum’s images that are part of The Commons on Flickr are marked “no known copyright restrictions.” This means that we are unaware of any current copyright restrictions on the works so designated, either because the term of copyright may have expired without being renewed, because no evidence has been found that copyright restrictions apply, or because we own the copyright but are not exercising that control.

When reusing the images, we appreciate that you state The Gallen-Kallela Museum as the original source and link back to the Flickr Commons to help spread the word of this treasure trove of historical images and to encourage their reuse.
