PROGRAM | Lecture
Anders Zorn, like many Nordic artists of his generation, sought education, inspiration, and a burgeoning art market in 1880s Paris. Returning home, these artists helped to create the visual symbols that came to be associated with nation building in the 1890s, a period of political instability. This talk examines the artists' communities in Paris, their connections across Europe and the Nordic countries, and the ways in which their cosmopolitanism shaped their contributions to nation building.
