2020 marks the 100-year anniversary of Anders Zorn’s death. Kunstmuseum Den Haag in The Hague is celebrating the occasion by showcasing Zorn’s oeuvre as a whole to the public.
Anders Zorn is still well known in Sweden, but he has largely escaped the attention of the public in the rest of Europe. This autumn's exhibition at Kunstmuseum Den Haag will be the first major exhibition of his work in the Netherlands.
A total of 150 paintings, watercolors and etchings are displayed and the visitor can follow Zorn's career and artistic development, everything from idyllic scenes in the Swedish countryside to portraits of the elite at the time. 47 of the works are on loan from Nationalmuseum.
The exhibition is a collaboration between Kunstmuseum Den Haag in The Hague, Netherlands, the Zorn Museum in Mora, Sweden and Nationalmuseum.
The exhibition was planned to open at Nationalmuseum in the summer 2020, but due to the situation with the new corona virus it is postponed until February 18, 2021.
