Gift of Rev. Richard L. Hillstromexpand_more  2001.108.1

Born and educated in Sweden, Sandzén emigrated to the United States at the age of 23. He settled in Lindsborg, Kansas, where he held a lifelong professorship at Bethany College.

Sandzén's technique is marked by a rich, inventive, high-key colorism executed in a pointillist style. His work is inspired by the landscape of the western United States, from summers spent in Colorado, Utah, and New Mexico.
