Anders Zorn: Sweden's Master Painter

Event Type: Lecture|Slideshow
Date:
Saturday, 12/07/13 at 3:00 pm
Library: Belmont
Ages: Adults
Description:

One of the most famous living artists at the turn of the 20th century, Anders Zorn (1860–1920) dazzled the art world with his bravura paintings, watercolors, and etchings. His early travels took him to Spain and Algeria where the intense color and light inspired the virtuoso watercolorist to perfect his craft. In Paris he emulated the Impressionists as a chronicler of modern life, while in America he rivaled John Singer Sargent as the most sought-after portraitist of glittering high society. Back at home Zorn captured his native folk culture and the serenity of the Nordic landscape.
