Anders Zorn


This is a lovely original portrait by Anders Zorn,  Skerikulla, the  image measures 9 3/4 x 7 5/8 inches, 1912, cat: Hjert-159, pencil signed proof, printed on Van Gelder Zonin watermarked paper  Anders Zorn's artistic talents were obvious at an early age. At 15 he entered the Royal Swedish Academy of Art in Stockholm and at 20 years old, at a student exhibition, he entered his watercolor painting "In Mourning" which now hangs in the National Museum in Stockholm. This recognition was the start of a long and accomplished career for Zorn. This lively portrait of a young woman is a great example of the impressionistic portraits and figure studies for which he was known.
