A fine early 20th-century original signed etching by Swedish artist, Anders Zorn (1860-1920) depicting Fredrik Martin. Zorn is considered to be one of Sweden’s greatest artists and, today, his works are held in many of the world’s leading public collections.
Anders Zorn was a precocious talent who impressed from an early age. He studied at the Royal Swedish Academy of Art in Stockholm and was soon commissioned by many of Stockholm’s notable dignitaries. Following this, he travelled extensively and achieved international success - with portraits including three American presidents.
Today he’s represented in the Musée d'Orsay, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
This particular etching depicts Fredrik Martin who was a collector and connoisseur.
The etching is signed in pencil, framed and glazed.
