Watercolor painting of a rugged mountain peak on an autumn day, possibly viewed from the eastern Sierra Nevada in the vicinity of Lone Pine or Bishop, signed at lower right and dated 1936 by listed California artist EINAR HANSEN (1884-1965). This is a beautifully executed vintage work, measuring 14 1/4" by 20 3/4" (24" by 30 3/4" in simple strip wood frame). Hansen was a painting friend of Maynard Dixon. One wonders if perhaps they were sitting together chatting while this was created. Einar Hansen was born in Copenhagen, Denmark and was educated in art there. By 1914 he was in the American Midwest, in Michigan and Illinois, and by 1926 found himself in Pasadena, California. A teacher at Otis Art Institute and Chouinard, he was promoted by a gallery in nearby Monrovia. Today a number of public buildings in the west, such as city halls, high schools and post offices, have murals by his hand. He was adept at portraiture, landscape, and still life. Hansen's work was widely exhibited, and today, paintings by his hand sell frequently at auction. This watercolor has fresh colors and is in excellent condition. Re-framing with acid free materials would be advisable. See another work by the artist (portrait, in oil), in my shop.
