English: In his autobiographical notes, Anders Zorn writes about how the idea for the painting was born: "This work was painted in June and part of July after sunset and I am pleased to have done it. I had just given Morkarlby a new maypole. It was painted red every Midsummer and I realised and still realise that it is my solemn duty to be present and to lead the dressing of said pole. My farmhand, dear Verner, was in charge of raising the maypole on the stroke of midnight on Midsummer night. Once it was up, a reel was played and people danced hand-in-hand around the maypole and the yards in an endless snake of youngsters. Then there was dancing in one of the yards until sunrise. This is what my painting portrays." Zorn does not put the maypole at the centre of his Midsummer Dance. His message is all about the experience of the dance, the scents of a summer night and the light. He completed this painting in 1897. Nationalmuseum received the work Midsummer Dance as a gift from the Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts in 1903. There is a replica in a rather smaller format in private ownership, commissioned by an American collector in 1903. Anders Zorn har i sina självbiografiska anteckningar skrivit om hur idén till målningen föddes: ”Denna tavla målades då under juni och en del av juli månad efter solnedgången och jag är glad att ha gjort den. Jag hade just då gett Morkarlby en ny majstång. Den målades röd varje midsommar och jag ansåg och anser fortfarande som min heliga plikt att närvara och leda klädningen av densamma. För resningen kl 12 midsommarnatten har min dräng, den käre Verner, fått vara överste. När den väl var rest spelades upp en polska och en långdans dansades kring stången och in på gårdarna, en ändlös orm av ungdom. Sedan dansades inne på någon gård till soluppgången. Se där vad min tavla föreställer.” I Zorns Midsommardans är inte majstången i centrum, utan det är upplevelsen av dansen, av sommarnattens dofter och av ljuset som är hans budskap. Nationalmuseum fick målningen i gåva av Konstakademien 1903. I privat ägo finns en replik i något mindre format, ursprungligen beställd av en amerikansk samlare samma år.

Pick your material variant

In the product dropdown lists you can pick your individual size and material. Pick your favorite size and material among the following options:

  • Aluminium dibond print: An Aluminium Dibond print is a print with an impressive depth effect. A direct Aluminium Dibond Print is your ideal start to fine art replicas on aluminum. For our Print On Aluminum Dibond, we print your selected artpiece right onto the surface of the white-primed aluminum. The colors are vivid and luminous in the highest definition, the fine details of the print are very clear.
  • Acrylic glass print: The print on acrylic glass, which is often referred to as a UV print on plexiglass, changes the original into beautiful home décor. Beyond that, it makes a good alternative to canvas or aluminium dibond art prints. The artwork is printed with state-of-the-art UV direct printing machines. The great advantage of a plexiglass fine art print is that contrasts as well as minor color details become more recognizeable because of the very subtle tonal gradation in the picture. Our real glass coating protects your chosen fine art print against light and external influences for up to 60 years.
  • Canvas print: A canvas print is a printed canvas mounted on a wooden frame. How do I hang a canvas on the wall? Canvas Prints have the advantage of being relatively low in weight, meaning that it is easy to hang your Canvas print without extra wall-mounts. A canvas print is suited for any kind of wall.
  • Printed poster (canvas material): Our poster print is a printed cotton canvas paper with a nice surface texture, that resembles the original artwork. It is suited for placing the art copy in a customized frame. Please keep in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the poster print we add a white margin of something between 2 - 6cm around the print in order to facilitate the framing.
