  2. Anders Zorn: Etchings

    March 8, 2020, 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM @ Eldredge, Spratlen, and Armstrong Galleries

    At the end of the 19th century, Anders Leonard Zorn (1860-1920) was one of the most well-known portraitists in France, England, and the United States. His talent, and knack for meeting the right people, led him to paint portraits of international celebrities including three U.S. Presidents, Swedish royalty, American railroad tycoons, and renowned artists. Born in Sweden, Zorn traveled extensively to places such as Paris, America, Cuba, Mexico, Turkey, Spain, Morocco, and the North Pole. This exhibition will present all 96 Zorn etchings from the Museum’s permanent collection, showcasing the full collection for the first time in many years. A catalog of Zorn's etchings is available for purchase at the Museum's retail kiosk. "Anders Zorn: Etchings" is generously underwritten by Howard & Nadia Cavner.
