Whilst this book is superb, a lot of Zorns works are left out. You DO though get a very good selection, but some of his landscapes with land girls are missing?
Just a little point......I wished they’d printed the sizes and dates of the paintings under the actual plates. Instead, they’re in the index at the back. Why have an index? It’s a clumsy way to do it. You have to keep on turning backwards and forwards to see information.
I love this artist so much.......recommended.
Anders Zorn: Sweden's Master Painter Hardcover – Illustrated, 29 October 2013
Enhance your purchase
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.
