Anders Leonard Zorn (Swedish painter, 1860–1920) was one of Sweden’s foremost artists who obtained international success as a painter, sculptor & printmaker in etching. In 1887, Zorn had received a request from the management of the Uffizi in Florence, to paint a self-portrait for their collection. It was not until 1888, that he completed this, and left the following reflections:

"I had by then never painted a portrait in the studio, because of the strange lighting and due to all the people disturbing me, but for my portrait, this could fit... It should be done in oils, and so I began trying. Of course, my vanity would portray me as a man capable of much more than painting, and suiting enough I was working on a bust of Emma in clay, so I let that lump of mud get in there as well."

  1. Beautiful collection of paintings by Zorn! Thank you for sharing them! I actually tried to follow a link to "Women Reading" on your blog and ended up on this post. I would have liked to see a lot of women reading, but this great artist is worth the time.
    If it is possible, I'm going to follow your blog.
    Kind regards Ilona Heimböckel
