The Zorn Collections, or Zornsamlingarna, is a Swedish state museum, located in Mora, dedicated to preserving the works by painter Anders Zorn.
Anders Zorn was one of Sweden's internationally best known artists. His fame abroad was founded mainly on his portraiture where he had the ability to capture the character and the personality of the depicted person. Also his nude studies are very famous, as are his genre pictures which mostly depict working people where his swift and elegant impressionistic technique found its fullest scope.
The Zorn Collections is the administrator of Anders and Emma Zorn's donation to the Swedish State. The Zorn Collections consists of four museums: Zorngården, Zorn Museum, Zorn's Gammelgård & Textilkammare and Zorn's Gopsmor.
Famous quotes containing the word collections:
“Most of those who make collections of verse or epigram are like men eating cherries or oysters: they choose out the best at first, and end by eating all.”
—Sébastien-Roch Nicolas De Chamfort (17411794)
