Accompanying a major retrospective of Anders Zorn's work, this is the first volume in English to explore the Swedish Impressionist's entire career in depth. Anders Zorn (1860-1920) is one of Sweden's most accomplished and beloved artists. Renowned for his light, expressive watercolors, he attained mastery of the genre at an early age and later applied his techniques to oil painting. Zorn is often compared with the artists John Singer Sargent and Joaquin Sorolla y Bastida, contemporaries who also were known for their portraits of high-society figures. Taking up residence in London and then in Paris, Zorn established himself as an international portrait painter, depicting fashionable clients in a style both elegant and relaxed. He became a favorite among wealthy American collectors, bankers, and industrialists who sat for him, including art collector Isabella Stewart Gardner and three U.S. presidents. Although perhaps best known for his portraits, Zorn brought equal skill to painting genre scenes and views of nature. This handsome volume provides a thorough introduction to the artist and his works, from portraiture to landscapes and his famous nudes. Four illustrated essays are accompanied by a chronology, selected bibliography, an exhibition checklist, and an index.

  1. Fantastisk bok om en briljant & generös konstnär.
    TM Nilsson, 20 november 2022

    En superb bok som ger bra överblick över en av Europas främsta, mest produktiva och mångfacetterade konstnärer genom tiderna. Rikt illustrerad och sätter in konstverken i sitt sammanhang vilka även är mycket fint återgivna. Välskriven men inte tyngd av "akademiskt lull-lull". Ovärderlig för den som tycker om konst eller intresserar sig för kultur. Den som såg den stora Zornutställningen på Nationalmuseum 2021 insåg nog - om man inte gjort det förr - vilken framstående konstnär Zorn är. Om int... Läs hela recensionen
