Signed l/r: Birger SandzÃ©n
Verso: In the Mountains (Rocky Mountain National Park) Colo. Birger Sandzén, Lindsborg, Kansas 1945.
Inscribed lower right: In October 1946 I went to the school (Lindsborg) where Sandzén taught. Verla Baird Nesbitt Joscelyn took me as she had attended Lindsborg and knew the Sandzéns. Mr. S was tall, grey hair, intense blue eyes - I had wanted a Kansas scene but loved the colors in this one. Signed Susanna M Nesbit Kesler, written Feb 22 - 1962
The present offering, Rocky Mountain National Park is typical of the heavy application of impasto and bright colors that he used in creating his distinctive interpretation of the Western United States landscape. Through his art and teaching, Sandzén became an advocate for art in the region and influenced a generation of artists.
Acquired from the artist by Sue Nesbitt Kesler, 1946
