Retretti Art Center, Punkaharju, 9 June 2012 – 28 August 2012. Viewed on Friday 13 July, 2012

Retretti: "This summer, the enchanting fairy tale world of the great Finnish artist Rudolf Koivu (1890-1946) can be discovered at Retretti. The master of illustrative art and author of fairy tales created magical realities with his pictures that continue to fascinate children and the young at heart."

"Contemporary artist Alexander Reichstein entered Koivu's fantasy world and brings it to Retretti this summer for everyone to enjoy. The princesses, knights, damsels, fairies, forest folk, trolls and sea creatures created by Koivu, and loved by everyone, charm visitors with their delicacy and lead them to an alternative world of stories and fairy tales."
