Anders Zorn | Omnibus, 1892 | Nationalmuseum, Stockholm

Anders Zorn | Omnibus (1891-1892) | Nationalmuseum, Stockholm (detail)

The electric evening light on the grand boulevards of Paris fascinated Anders Zorn (Swedish painter, 1860-1920)🎨.
With his virtuoso technique, he records here how it is reflected in the misted-up windows of an omnibus and falls on the faces and bodies of the passengers.
The main figure in the painting is the young woman with the square box. Behind her, a prostitute can be made out. Both represent the modern city, with its commercial attractions and dangers. | © Nationalmuseum, Stockholm
