Beschreibung:

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 Joaquín 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.
"Published ... on the occasion of the exhibition Anders Zorn: Sweden's master painter on view at the Legion of Honor, San Francisco, November 9, 2013-February 2, 2014, and at the National Academy Museum, New York, February 27-May 18, 2014"--Colophon.
