ZORN, Anders
(b. 1860, Mora, d. 1920, Mora)


Oil on canvas, 112 x 94 cm
Museo d'Arte Moderna, Ca' Pesaro, Venice

The Swedish painter Zorn was a visitor to Venice thanks in part to his friendship with Isabella Stewart Gardner, tenant of Palazzo Barbaro. His fluid, painterly style and sensual subjects were perfectly adapted to the kind of bourgeois and salon taste that marked the pre-Great War Venice Biennales.
