Anders Zorn (February 18, 1860 – August 22, 1920) was a Swedish painter and printmaker in etching.

He was born in Mora, Dalarna. He studied at The Academy of Arts in Stockholm from 1875-1880. He became an international success as one of the most acclaimed portrait painters of his era. His sitters included three American Presidents, one of whom was Grover Cleveland in 1899. Zorn is also famous for his nude paintings and vivid depictions of water.

Some of his most important works can be seen at Nationalmuseum (National Museum of Fine Arts) in Stockholm, Sweden. Among them is Midsummer Dance (1897), a depiction of dancers in the evening light of a rural Midsummer Eve celebration. Other museums holding works by Zorn include the Musée d'Orsay in Paris and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

The Zorn Museum was opened by Ragnar östberg in Mora in 1939. The Zorn Collections in Mora (Dalarna, Sweden) is a museum dedicated to the works of Anders Zorn.
