Legion of Honor
Anders Zorn, who came from a humble background, fell in love with and became secretly engaged to an upper-middle-class girl named Emma. Their nuptials, however, would depend on whether or not Zorn could make a success of himself in the world. Needless to say, his extraordinary artistic talent and unbridled ambition resulted in the couple’s wedding and a lasting partnership. On view now in Anders Zorn: Sweden’s Master Painter. Anders Zorn (Swedish, 1860—1920).
