Anders Zorn, Swedish, 1860-1920, "Skerikulla". This is a lovely original portrait by Anders Zorn, image size 9 3/4 x 7 5/8 inches, 1912, cat: Hjert-159, unsigned proof, printed on Van Gelder Zonin watermarked paper with the original label from Arthur H Halo & Co, NY. Anders Zorn's artistic talents were obvious at an early age. At 15 he entered the Royal Swedish Academy of Art in Stockholm and at 20 years old, at a student exhibition, he entered his watercolor painting "In Mourning" which now hangs in the National Museum in Stockholm. This recognition was the start of a long and accomplished career for Zorn. This lively portrait of a young woman is a great example of the impressionistic portraits and figure studies for which he was known.
