The second chapter goes back to the time of Sirén’s early career. It began in Finland and in Sweden. He started works on rococo topics and gradually gained international fame as a scholar of Italian art before he explored the Chinese arts. During this period, he established himself in Sweden as the professor of art history at the University of Stockholm in 1908. He was also a theosophist. What’s more, he started writing poems.
