Birger Sandzen

Birger Sandzen is known for abstract richly colored landscape and still life painting.


Born Blidsberg, Sweden, Feb. 5, 1871; died Lindsborg, June 19, 1954.

Painter, specialized in landscapes. Etcher. Engraver. Lithographer. Teacher. Sandzén’s style of painting is unusual in its thick and heavy application of impasto in bold and bright color combinations, interpreting the landscape of the western United States. He is known for very colorful renderings of mountain lakes with boulders, cypress and aspen trees and moonrises along waterways. Sandzén was an important advocate for art in the region, spending time talking to people about art, organizing exhibitions and establishing art clubs. He donated artwork to the local art club to help raise money for the purchasing of art books for the library, the financing of exhibitions, and the occasional awarding of a scholarship.
