One of the most famous living artists at the turn of the 20th century, Anders Zorn (1860–1920) dazzled the art world with his bravura paintings, watercolors, and etchings. In this documentary filmed at the Zorn Museum in Mora, Sweden, Anders Zorn's story is told by museum director Johan Cederlund and other Zorn experts from Stockholm's National Museum, San Francisco's Legion of Honor and Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.

Zorn’s portraits of the powerful, that also included depictions of European royalty and American captains of industry, represent half of Zorn’s oeuvre, with the other half being his paintings of everyday Swedish life. Together they have made him Sweden’s premier painter. 

Anders Zorn in the Guilded Age airs Sunday, July 13, at 3 p.m. on KCTS 9.
