Zorn Exhibit at Gardner Museum

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum will exhibit 24 of Anders Zorn paintings Feb. 28-May 13 in its new wing. The museum is located down the street from the MFA at 280 the Fenway, Boston. This first historic exhibition will present new international scholarship about Anders Zorn, considered one of the most significant artists of the Belle Epoque (“Beautiful Era” 1871-1914). Although highly esteemed by contemporaries on both sides of the Atlantic, Zorn is little known in the U.S. today, although he is often favorably compared with his contemporary, John Singer Sargent. Isabella Stewart Gardner was one of his major patrons in the U.S. Admission is $15 for adults and $12 for seniors. The museum is closed Tuesdays. It is open the other 6 days 11 am-5pm, except Thursdays, when it is open until 9pm.
