    Dazzlingly bright slanting sunlight illuminates the artist’s white smock and highlights the side of his forehead. But Zorn’s studio is gloomy, and shapes and details are hard to discern. In the background, his model, an Italian girl, sits with her long, auburn hair wrapped around her. Zorn’s self-portrait was exhibited in Stockholm in 1897.
