A blog about how paintings, photographs, and prints have helped me visualize my fiction—both Where the Light Falls and works-in-progress—with a hope that they will stimulate other writers and readers, too.

Picturing a World

National Museum of Stockholm

June 7, 2017

Tags: Scandinavian artists, Zorn, nudes

Blog alert! The June 6th post at the invaluable Line and Colors blog announces a Treasure trove of high-res images from Nationalmuseum Stockholm and gives instructions on how to explore it. After visiting the sight, I chose this image by Anders Zorn because his studies of nude bathers influenced how I imagined my characters swimming at Pont Aven. The image here is linked to the high-res version so that you can see how completely the new site allows study of canvas and brush strokes. Double click it!
