Anders Zorn: Sweden's Master Painter

November 17, 2017

The Petit Palais is devoting a major retrospective to the work of Anders Zorn (1860-1920), one of the central figures of Swedish painting at the turn of the 19th-century. During his lifetime, Zorn achieved great renown as a portrait painter and etcher.

Along with Sargent, Sorolla, Boldini, and Besnard, he was one of the most visible disciples of an international style that was both modern and masterful, where energetic brushwork combined with bold composition and lighting to create elegant portraits that were also great works of art. This first retrospective in Paris should mark the return to grace of a master who remains very popular in Scandinavia.

The exhibition runs from 9/15/2017 - 12/7/2017 at the Petit Palais, Avenue Winston Churchill, Paris, Île-de-France 75008.
