Artist Anders Zorn (1860 – 1920) became famous as the society painter of Swedish royalty and American presidents. While his modern portraits earned him a nice living,  it was Zorn’s deeply felt and excellently executed oil paintings of everyday Swedish life along with his studies of female nudes in nature that would win him a lasting international reputation as Sweden’s premier painter.

Anders Zorn (1860-1920) is the most well-known Swedish painter. His work shows a variety of themes from figurative works to genre paintings. His color choices in each painting are beautiful and his brush work bold and confident.

He has painted the people of his hometown, Dalarna and created many portraits, among them three United States presidents.
