Anders Zorn (1860 – 1920) painter of three US presidents is internationally renowned for his portraits and paintings.
Zorngården in Mora was the home of Anders and Emma Zorn, and Emma lived here until 1942, when she died.
The house is an eclectic mix of Swedish and English style, filled with Gustavian, Empire and country-style furniture. The house was finished in 1910 and contains many original objects that belonged to the Zorns. There is an extraordinary room in the east wing, almost 10 metres from floor to ceiling, that the Zorns used for socialising and entertaining guests. Interestingly, the cottage part of the house was originally situated on Anders Zorn’s maternal grandfather’s farm and Zorn had it moved here when he purchased the land.
Many silver articles, from designs by Zorn, are on display.
