The Waltz

The Waltz
This is my favorite painting in the Biltmore House and it is by Swedish artist Anders Zorn (1860-1920). It has been moved since my visit last year and does not show as well in the new location.  The painting is quite a bit darker than this on the lower right side and looks sadly in need of restoration. In spite of that, it is still a beautiful painting. It is quite large, much taller than I am.
There are many more wonderful works of art here including portraits by John Singer Sargent.


  1. This is indeed a gorgeous painting! I have always wanted to visit the Biltmore House at Christmas. It is glorious all times of the year and must be very special now. Did you go to the Grove Park Inn too?

    Fay, Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and the happiest of New Years.
