Anders Zorn in the Gilded Age

  • Aired: 08/20/2013
  • Rating: NR
In the Gilded Age artist Anders Zorn (1860 – 1920) became the society painter of Swedish royalty and American presidents. While his modern portraits filled his coffers 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.
