Impressionist Dalecarlian woman by Zorn sold for SEK 10,6 million
Today, the first day of the Classic sale at 1:57 pm the top lot En Eva, by Anders Zorn, was sold for SEK 10,6 Million.
This is the fourth work by the artist in one year sold for more than SEK 10 Million at Bukowskis.
During the first day (out of a total four days), Swedish and international classic art is sold. En Eva, by Anders Zorn from 1902, was sold for SEK 10,6 Million and is regarded to be one of the most important works from this period. The motive, nude in the landscape, is from Prästholmen outside Morastrand, Dalecarlia in northern Sweden. The work is mentioned in Zorn-literature and this particular painting confirms the maturity and skill of the artist.
The same price level as En Eva was reached last spring, when Söndagsmorgon and Sommar were sold for ca SEK 11 Million. Last autumn Röd sand was sold for SEK 13 Million.
Today, until now, two works by Carl Larsson have been sold for SEK 2,7 Million and 2,266 Million respectively. The painting Kalkbrottet, by C F Hill was sold for SEK 3,3 Million.
The auction will continue tomorrow with Swedish and international old masters and furniture.
