Anders Zorn (1860-1920) attended the Royal Academy Art School in Stockholm. Zorn's work leaned heavily toward Impressionism. In his portraits, in Parisian street scenes, and in view of the surroundings of his home at Mora in Dalecarlia, his swift and elegant Impressionistic technique found its fullest scope.
Anders Zorn became known for his work with bathing peasant girls and his best work were his etchings, done in a technique of more or less parallel lines across the plate, which was the counterpart of his rapid manner of painting. His nudes are as innocently sensuous as those in Renoir's late works.
This Anders Zorn etching is in a brownish/black with walnut wood undertone Roma "Provence" 27 1/8" x 22 1/2" frame. The matching Roma wood fillet echoes the frame. The outer sawdust linen and inner 8-ply rag mats are acid and lignin free and protected with Acrylite-AR OP3 (UV) by CYRO ........... $2,600.00
