Anders Zorn - Swedish Artist

What I loved about seeing the art of the Swedish artist Anders Zorn, was how he was able to capture the essence, personality, and feelings of some of the people and places on his canvas. At times it was if you could hear and feel the softness of water hitting a boat...

or hear the giggles of twin girls as they were propped up for their portrait painting....


or could feel the prickliness and stern personality of Mrs. Elizabeth Sherman Cameron, the second wife of a Senator J Donald Cameron...


This brief video of Anders Zorn's life, along with seeing some of his work, is a great way to learn more about this wonderful artist.  His exhibit is at San Francisco's Legion of Honor until Feb 2, 2014.
