Although he was one of the most celebrated portrait painters of his era, Swedish artist Anders Zorn is not widely recognized today. San Francisco’s Legion of Honor aims to highlight many rarely seen works by Zorn in the exhibition ‘Anders Zorn: Sweden’s Master Painter.’

Zorn, who rivaled John Singer Sargent as the most sought-after portraitist of the members of high society including presidents, industry giants, and various other aristocrats, was also an accomplished watercolorist and etcher. The Legion of Honor’s exhibition features 100 works by the artist from public and private collections throughout Europe and the United States and spans Zorn’s prolific career.

‘Anders Zorn: Sweden’s Master Painter’ will be on view at the Legion of Honor through February 2, 2014.
