The Zorn Collections
The Zorn Collections is the official name of Anders and Emma Zorns' donation to the Swedish state. Dating from 1942 it includes more than sixty buildings and approximately 20,000 art objets. Essentially it can be divided into four different parts: The Zorn Museum, The Zorn House, The open-air museum Zorn's Gammelgård and Gopsmor. The Textile Museum next to Zorn's Gammelgård was added in 1995. The donation also included a substantial capital sum. This is entitled The Zorn Fund and is administered by Uppsala University.
This museum was inaugurated in 1939 and is today considered to be one of Sweden's classic museums. It mainly contains works by Anders Zorn.
