Anders Zorn: Summertime, 1886

Anders Zorn (1860-1920) was a Swedish painter and printmaker in etching… One of the most acclaimed painters of his era… While his early works were often brilliant, luminous watercolors, by 1887 he had switched firmly to oils … also famous for his nude paintings and realistic depictions of water.
It was primarily his skill as a portrait painter that gained Zorn international acclaim based principally upon his incisive ability to depict the individual character of his model. His subjects included three American Presidents, one of whom was Grover Cleveland in 1899.
