Anders Zorn, A Musical Family


Anders Zorn, A Musical Family, 1905
Oil on canvas

In winter 1905, Prince Eugen visited Zorn in Mora. One day, they paid a call to the folk musician Kings Olof Andersson. The artist has described the scene: "Violins and guitars were lifted from the wall, and father and four daughters did their best... Illuminated by the lively flames in the fireplace, the prince sat in the grandfather chair in his Russian fur coat, regal in every way, listening to Margit's pure voice accompanied by her guitar and 3 violins. The prince said I should paint them, and I did, but without him in the picture."
