0259 Reconsidering Anders Zorn’s Omnibus Paintings
This article reconsiders the relationship between Anders Zorn’s (1860–1920) Omnibus paintings. Two largescale versions exist for the Omnibus motif (Omnibus I and Omnibus II), both of which have historically been viewed as official works that were exhibited by Zorn during the years 1892–1893. Drawing upon recent technical analyses of the artist’s oil paintings, together with relevant archival sources, a discussion is put forward with the aim of reconfiguring the earlier Omnibus I (1891) version as an initial sketch (esquisse) to the later Omnibus II (1892).
