Very early I learned to know Anders Zorn
Every evening, just before sleep, I was studying a picture
painted by him. Djos Mats was the title of the painting.
Djos Mats, a shoemaker, sitting at his desk, glasses and
hat on. Leaning over his workbench.
I gazed at the picture. hanging over the sofa, and
I was so amazed over how it was done ... small dots
of color, just on the tip of the glasses, a stroke of
cadmium on the ear .... wonderful.
I tried to find out what
made the light in the shoemakers eyes so vibrant..
I wondered and wondered and then
I fell asleep.
Many times have I been to Mora and the Museum.
And I am still astonished when I see the pictures shown there.
He was a marvellous artist.
I made this picture for an article about Mora
and Zorn. Published in GP.
