Some vital background for Anders Zorn posters

To make your selection process more focused and precise, let us go over the artist's life a little bit. Born on the 18th of February, 1860 in Sweden, Zorn demonstrated a remarkable skill from an early age and gained attention for his depictions of horses and human figures which he even carved in wood. Although initially planning on becoming a sculptor, he ended up favoring painting, which you will see in our Anders Zorn posters. Even though he studied at the Royal Swedish Academy of Arts from 1875 to 1880, his attendance was so poor and he later even admitted that he did not have much to learn from the Academy. As already mentioned, Zorn went on to paint many of society's leading figures during his time, including King Oscar II of Sweden, Theodore Roosevelt, Grover Cleveland and William H. Taft. With Anders Zorn posters, not only will you have a stylish display in your interiors, but also someone of historic value.

Aside from these magnificent portraits, Zorn was also renowned for his depictions of nude female figures. With his soft edges and loose brushwork, the figures seem to dissolve into the surrounding environment, establishing a touch of class and sophistication despite the perhaps touchy subject.

Zorn is well-known also for his use of a limited palette of colours. The so-called "Zorn palette" is taught in many of the top art schools to help students learn about colour theory and mixing. His paintings for the most part show a restrained and controlled use of colour, as you can observe in Anders Zorn posters such as Omnibus, Anders Zorn. This remarkable and almost haunting motif has such character, that you could exhibit it in any home, workplace or even recreational area and it would generate maximum visual impact. Zorn's compositions often appear natural and organic, with his subjects seemingly unaware of his presence, going about their day-to-day lives, almost like a photograph. His most famous painting, Midsommardans, Anders Zorn, is evidence of this. A wonderful Anders Zorn poster like this can transform your interiors instantaneously.
