Anders Zorn at the National Academy in New York
By the turn of the 20th century, the success of Anders Zorn (1860-1920) rivaled that of the most famous artists of his day, including John Singer Sargent. A virtuoso watercolorist, bravura painter, and etcher, Zorn had risen from humble beginnings in the Swedish countryside to travel the world, captivate American artists and politicians alike, and paint some of the most sought after portraits of America’s Gilded Age. This major retrospective features more than 90 rarely seen works and brings to light the work of a master, long overlooked in America. Anders Zorn: Sweden’s Master Painter is on view February 27 – May 18, 2014.
