Anders Zorn - Self-Portrait with Model II, 1899

Anders Zorn (Mora, 1860 - 1920, Mora)

Self-Portrait with Model II and Mrs. Cleveland I, 1899

Etching , 24.8 x 17.8 cm (9 3/4 x 7 in.)


Resting in front of his easel and smoking a cigarette, Zorn takes a short pause from his work. A half-dressed model in the background looks attentively at him. With this juxtaposition, Zorn created a powerful tension between artist and model. This etching is based on the painted version made three years earlier.
