Anders Zorn (1860-1920) is one of Sweden’s most accomplished and beloved artists. Born in humble circumstances in the small village of Mora, Dalarna, he quickly rose to become an international portrait painter of the highest order. His enduring popular acclaim is also based on his nude paintings and genre scenes, as well as his etchings.This book features 67 of Anders Zorn's major works: portraits of celebrities, pictures of the life of common people in Dalecarlia, motifs from the Stockholm archipelago and bathing women.

For a long time now, the Zorn Museum has had a tradition of having a summer exhibition of Zorn’s art every year. Now has come the time to present The Love Nymph, an outstanding watercolor from 1885, that became his first painting of a naked motif. Zorn worked on the painting for over a year and no other watercolor piece has been studied so thoroughly by so many, both in regards to figure art work and that of the surrounding nature. This book presents many new photos never published before.

Asplund’s complete catalogue of etchings and engravings by Anders Zorn (1860-1920) was first published in 1920 in a limited edition. It has long been out of print and sought after. While there have been abbreviated catalogues of the artists graphic work, only this work has all the necessary attributes of a real catalogue raisonne: All of the works of the artist are reproduced in generous formats. Each state of a work is meticulously described. Each edition of a work is indicated. Institutuions holding impressions of each state of a work are identified. Biographical information is furnished for the many (now often obscure) subjects. Similar works by the artist in other media are noted. This new edition adds a complete alphabetical index at the end of each volume.
