1950s Vintage Ejnar Hansen Oil on Board Portrait Painting
The bohemian style is eternal, but faces such as this one are rare indeed. Hansen’s way with a portrait is, as always, superb. And truthful. And THAT is rare in portrait work. Born in Copenhagen, Denmark on Jan. 9, 1884, Hansen attended the Royal Academy of Art in Copenhagen. He arrived in the U.S. in 1914 and lived in Michigan and Wheaton, IL before settling in Pasadena in 1924. He taught at Chouinard and Otis Art Institutes, Pomona College, John Muir College, and the Pasadena School of Fine Arts. Hansen died in Pasadena on Sept. 26, 1965. His oeuvre includes still lifes, landscapes, portraits, and figure compositions in oil and watercolor. His works won many awards in southern California exhibitions from 1927.
