Birger Sandzen (1871-1954)

written by  

and Ashley Rolshoven

Birger Sandzen was called,  the "American Van Gogh".

He said "my gift to America is to make one realize how beautiful the simplest landscape is

and how alive, vigorous and changing our trees and rocks are.

The gift of understanding beauty is the greatest anyone can make to another human being."

"Painting was my greatest ambition - not just to paint pictures to sell, but to understand the country about me and about its formation.

When this was understood, I could paint an American landscape and show how beautiful it was to those who had not yet realized how lovely America is."
