Artist of the Day-Anders Zorn ( click on image to view more)

Zorn was called the Swedish John Singer Sargent. The two artists have much in common. Facile in both watercolor and oils, known for their portrait paintings and their friendships with wealthy patrons like Isabella Stewart Gardner. It was at her museum in Boston that I first saw Zorn’s small etchings. Like Sargent, Zorn makes these lose marks that come together to create a solid form. First up a portrait of Isabella Stewart Gardner in Venice!
