SOLD OUT: Anne-Marie Eze: In the Hub: Anders Zorn and Isabella Stewart Gardner in Boston
Thursday, April 25, 7:00 PM
PROGRAM | Lecture
Anders Zorn visited Boston on each of his seven trips to the United States between 1893 and 1911. He was drawn to the city by Isabella Stewart Gardner, who was one of his most important American patrons and friends. In Boston, Zorn socialized and relaxed with Gardner and her circle. He also made portraits of them, which he exhibited with other works in the city’s finest art venues. This lecture discusses for the first time Zorn’s reception in the Hub, and Isabella Stewart Gardner’s role in promoting the artist.
