Anders Zorn

Anders Zorn, Mrs. Lucy Turner Joy, 1897

Anders Zorn, Frieda Schiff, 1894

Zorn made his reputation as a portrait painter. Fashionable people of wealth on both sides of the Atlantic vied for sittings, knowing that the result would be a picture less theatrical than a portrait by Boldini but more vivid than one by Sargent. Zorn often gave his portraits a sense of immediacy by depicting the subject as if he or she were just entering the room, thus directly addressing the viewer.

The colors, the dresses, the brush strokes, pretty much everything about 
these painting's are amazing. 

Hope you are having a great weekend!
