The unforgettable Finnish Actor Lasse Pöysti’s favorite artwork: The “Shisha smoker” by Enrico Garff at bidding at Hagelstam’s auction house in Helsinki

Lasse Pöysti and the “The Shisha Smoker” by Enrico Garff – watercolor

Lasse Pöysti bought the painting from Isabella’s mother Baroness Isa Gripenberg (1914-2006)

Lasse Pöysti interviewed by the magazine “Kyrkpressen” (the Church’s Swede-Finnish Magazine) posed in front of the painting: the Harlequin joined the picture because of the perfect combination of the colors between the watercolor and the doll. The actor passed away on April 5th, 2019 leaving a deep space in the theatrical world. During the interview, Lasse claimed that “The Shisha” smoker was the only painting he purchased in the early 90s. The actor was used to receiving several artworks as presents due to his extreme popularity and the tight circle of friends surrounding him.

The photo below brings us back to the 60s when Lasse Pöysti featured the Moomintroll character on the stage in plays inspired by the writer Tove Jansson’s famous Moomin characters.

Tove Jansson (1914-2001) played a major role in Finnish literature. The cherished and beloved author by many kids and adults who grew up reading her novels and tales was also a dear friend of Isa Gripenberg since childhood.
