Between the years 1893 and 1911, Anders Zorn made seven trips to the United States, traveling widely and crafting portraits of some of America's most prominent figures, among them three presidents. With Zorn in America. A Swedish Impressionist of the Gilded Age, William and Willow Hagans present for the first time in English the definitive chronicle of Anders Zorn's travels to the United States. The result of twenty years of research, the book illuminates the details and stories that surround the paintings and etchings Zorn completed during his lengthy sojourns in the United States. Enriched with over 140 paintings, etchings and photographs Zorn in America delivers a compelling and overdue chapter in the life of an artist who, in his time and beyond, was as well known to the American public as any other in the world.
