The Alameda Free Library present a talk on Anders Zorn, Sweden’s master painter, at 6:30 p.m. tonight (Wednesday, Jan. 8), in the Regina Stafford Meeting Room of the Main Library, 1550 Oak St.

The speaker is Marsha Holm, a docent with the Fine Art Museums of San Francisco. Her presentation is sponsored by the Friends of the Alameda Free Library.

Zorn’s works are on exhibit at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco through Feb. 2. About 100 rarely seen works from collections throughout the United States and Europe are included in the show.

Zorn did both watercolors, etchings and paintings. He traveled to Spain, Algeria, Paris and other parts of the world, and his art reflects the influence of the Impressionists. He also traveled the America, where he did many portraits. In his home country, his work focused on landscapes.
