MORA’S ZORN MUSEUM – The Swedish state museum, dedicated to preserving the works by painter Anders Zorn

In 1896, Anders and Emma Zorn moved to Mora. Zorn had already bought a plot of land (alongside Mora church), and he now moved to the new property a small cottage, from his maternal grandfather’s farm. This became Zorn House. Zorn’s passion for collecting, took many forms. He began considering a museum where the collections could be shown. Here you find the world’s largest collection of works by Anders Zorn. Inside the Zorn Museum http://www.zorn.se/en/ you can discover an permanent exhibition with Zorn’s watercolours and oil paintings, you can enter inside an separate room, that shows the comprehensive collection of silverware (that once adorned Zorn House). zorn-house-2-1
