Anders Zorn. The master of Swedish painting

Exhibition September 15 − December 17, 2017
The small Palace in Paris announced major retrospective of Anders Zorn – the brightest representative of the Swedish painting.

The artist enjoyed great popularity at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, but none of his solo exhibition in Paris was not from the 1906!

The main features of artistic style Zorn – finesse and elegance. The painter had a natural sense of style and an amazing ability to portray light that made his work truly unique. This is particularly evident on "water" paintings by Swedish masters. Anders Zorn portrayed the Stockholm archipelago and the coast of North Africa, the Venice lagoon and the port of Hamburg, the waves of the Atlantic, and more. The eternal movement of the waves was reflected in the works of this man. Do you want to "swim"?..

The artist worked in watercolor, but have experimented with oil – especially in a series of portraits of the Paris period.

The first for many years, the exhibition Anders Zorn in the French capital, will run from September 15 to December 17.
