sommarnoje

Sommarnoje by Anders Zorn, 1886. Translated simply as ‘summertime’, Sommarnoje is Sweden’s most expensive painting ever sold. I simply cannot get over the perfection in Zorn’s painted water; it looks like a photograph! Zorn was an Impressionist and though this particular piece is Impressionist-like in subject, the style is very linear and much less painterly than some of his other works.
