Anders Zorn 1860-1920

Studio Idyll 1918 by Anders Zorn
Red Sand 1902 by Anders Zorn
I was not familiar with Anders Zorn, but I saw a post about him on
Internet Weekly tonight.

"Anders Zorn (1860-1920) is the most well-known Swedish painter. He is famous for his paintings of the people of Dalarna, the part of Sweden where he was born, and his nudes in the open space."
