PROGRAM | Lecture
Architectural freedom was emerging at the time when Isabella Stewart Gardner created her museum, which opened in 1903, and Anders and Emma Zorn created their home, Zorngården, in Sweden, which was completed around 1910. Zorngården, like the Gardner Museum, is a work of art in totality. Zorn created his home with a fresh mixture of styles, including local timber architecture, contemporary English villa architecture, and his ideas about houses from the Viking era. Paintings, sculptures and decorative art from around the world are boldly combined with the traditional art of his home region of Dalarna.
