Studying Zorn...

After Degas and Sargent(not in any order of priority) Anders Zorn is one of the greatest wielders of the painting brush - as far as drawing with the brush is concerned. Yet he is not very well known outside Sweden. As an etcher, Zorn is almost unparalled - only Rembrandt comes to my mind on a similar context. Even though Zorn's popularity now mostly rests on his nudes - earthy, normal women standing by the brook, leaning on sand banks, taking a shower or sauna, or dually lit by light coming from the window and the fireplace, he was also in constant demand as a portraitist. His watercolors - those ripple effects in mid-day sun are amazingly bold and skillfull. When I first saw his works I could only stare open-mouthed at his versatility.
