Description

Experience the feeling of stepping straight into Zorn's painting at Gopsmorstugan, Anders Zorn's beloved fisherman's cottage and wilderness studio.
In 1904, Zorn, from his uncle Per, bought a plot of land on the banks of the Dalälven river. The place was named Gopsmor and became a refuge for the artist, a combined wilderness studio and fisherman's cottage where he could retreat. Here he lived "as in the manner of his fathers" with a simple diet and without the comforts of Zorngården.

Gopsmor is open 6 weekends during the summer and here you can, among other things, get a tour and meet local craftsmen from the area.
