The Saastamoinen Foundation Art Collection was added to EMMA’s collections as a deposit in conjunction with the founding of the museum. The collection has grown to its current size, 2,500 works, from a series of works that the Saastamoinen industrialist family acquired originally for their private collection.
 
EMMA has permanently on display approximately 150 works from the Saastamoinen Foundation Art Collection.

The Saastamoinen Foundation Art Collection represents a broad cross-section of Finnish painting from the early 1900s to this day. In addition to Finnish art, the collection has since the 1980s also acquired international, mainly European contemporary art. The permanent display features examples from such masters of contemporary art as Antony Gormley, Mimmo Paladino and Tony Cragg.
