Anders Zorn - Sweden’s Master Painter

One of my favourite triumvirate (the others are John Singer Sargent and Joaquín Sorolla). 

This book is a great introduction to the work and life of the most famous painter in Sweden, with beautiful colour reproductions. 

It’s amazing to see how he created paintings with his famous limited ‘Zorn Palette’. I’m particularly fond of the way he painted water and reflection of lights. 
I didn’t know much about his water colours and etchings. They’re all beautiful. 

The comparison to Sargent is inevitable. He’s far much less well-known than Sargent, but equally important painter in my opinion.
