Legion of Honor • Nov 9,–Feb 2
(Swedish, 1860–1920) Anders Zorn was one of the world’s most famous living artists at the turn of the twentieth century. A hugely successful portrait painter in this country—he depicted captains of industry, members of high society, and three U.S. Presidents.
During the 1880s and 1890s Zorn lived in London and Paris, where he became acquainted with key figures of the Belle Époque, including James McNeill Whistler, John Singer Sargent, and Auguste Rodin, as well as many of the French Impressionists. Zorn made seven trips to the US, visiting San Francisco during the winter of 1903–1904, where he declared the nightlife “particularly appealing from a male point of view.”
The exhibit includes a hundred paintings, watercolors, etchings, and sculptures.
