Bukowskis is proud to present a work by Anders Zorn, “En Eva”, at our Important Spring Sale, this spring’s major hammer sale. The painting will be sold on 4 June and will be available to view at Berzelii Park 1 in Stockholm between 29 May and 3 June.

In the piece ”En Eva”, Anders Zorn has depicted the model set against a background of Swedish nature and impending autumn in a masterly way. In a somewhat mysterious way, the autumn is present in the green foliage, but Eva is forever young. Although Zorn has, foremost, been capitivated by the complexity of painting, his thoughts also centered on the recurring theme of autumn and spring. Just like his poetic sense for the contrast between the symbol of eternal youth, sublime maiden girl in the copse and the impendning autumn. Adding to the picture, Gerda Boëthius mentioned a study, with a similar motif, which allegedly was named ”Autumn and spring” by the artist.
