Midnight

1891

Oil on canvas

“A bright and chilly Nordic summer’s night” is Zorn’s own description of this painting’s theme. With a few experienced strokes of the oars, the woman steers the boat towards the

shore. The air is moist with dew and the first rays of sunshine strike the inside of the boat. The painting was first sold to French opera singer Jean Baptiste Faure. Later it was

bought back by Emma Zorn.
