Anders Zorn is one of Sweden's' internationally best known artists. His fame abroad is founded mainly on his portraiture where he had the ability to capture the character and the personality of the depicted person. Also his nude studies are very famous, as are his genre pictures which mostly depict working people where his swift and elegant impressionistic technique found its fullest scope.

The international esteem Zorn received was not based only on his paintings though. He was an exquisite etcher as well and also his graphic work, where he is among the most talented of all times, is well-known with a very special technique of more or less parallel lines across the plate, which was counterpart of his rapid manner of painting. Zorn made 289 etchings, a number of which are very well known. Zorn also admired and collected the etched works of Rembrandt and considered him to be his artistic forefather in this particular medium – but
others have even found them to be equals.

Anders Zorn was, in part, a cosmopolitan. His insatiable passion for visual experiences led him all over the civilized world. His versatile powers required a large audience. He lived in England, France, Spain. He made seven trips to USA and painted three presidents. The lust of his eye demanded an ever-changing kaleidoscopic panorama. But at heart he was always a native Swede, and after the restless, conquering years of his youth, which made him world famous, he returned to his little home town Mora to spend the rest of his life. He died on August 22, 1920.

 Emma Zorn survived her husband by 21 years. She died on January 4, 1942. To honour the memory of her husband, she had worked to create a museum, which opened in 1939. She completed the existing collection by re-purchasing a number of paintings that he had sold and at the same time she continued the philanthropic work that the Zorns had initiated together.

The Zorn Collections in Mora is the administrator of Anders and Emma Zorn's donation to the Swedish State which contains four museums: Zorngården, Zorn Museum, Zorn's Gammelgård & Textilkammare and Zorn's Gopsmor.
