Docent Lecture: Anders Zorn: Sweden's Master Painter, by Marsha Holm
Florence Gould Theater
Featuring 100 works drawn from public and private collections throughout Europe and the United States, this major retrospective promises to be a revelation for those yet to discover the vibrant artistic personality of Sweden’s master painter. In Paris Zorn matched the Impressionists as a chronicler of modern life. In America he rivaled John Singer Sargent as a sought-after portraitist of glittering high society. In Sweden Zorn captured his native folk culture and the Nordic landscape.
