This lot includes the original engraving of Swedish writer August Strindberg shown in the corresponding image. This engraving was made by Swedish artist Anders Zorn in 1910. Johan August Strindberg (1849 – 1912) was a Swedish playwright, novelist, and essayist. "A prolific writer who often drew directly on his personal experience, Strindberg's career spanned four decades, during which time wrote over 60 plays and more than 30 works of fiction, autobiography, history, cultural analysis, and politics. A bold experimenter and iconoclast throughout, he explored a wide range of dramatic methods and purposes, from naturalistic tragedy, monodrama, and history plays, to his anticipations of expressionist and surrealist dramatic techniques. From his earliest work, Strindberg developed forms of dramatic action, language, and visual composition so innovative that many were to become technically possible to stage only with the advent of film. He is considered the 'father' of modern Swedish literature and his The Red Room (1879) has frequently been described as the first modern Swedish novel. Anders Leonard Zorn (1860 – 1920) was one of Sweden’s foremost artists who obtained international success as a painter, sculptor and printmaker in etching. (Biographical information courtesy of Wikipedia.)
