Between 1908 and 1952, Kansas painter Birger Sandzén spent nearly every summer here and thus became one of the most important artists to have ever worked in Colorado. In the 1920s, Sandzén taught at the Broadmoor Academy, the predecessor to the... More »
For decades during the first half of the twentieth century, Birger Sandzén, a Swedish painter based in Kansas, spent his summers in Colorado recording the celebrity scenery in photos, drawings and, most famously, paintings. His signature style -- characterized by wild flourishes of brushwork carried out in cotton-candy shades of thick paint -- created a bridge linking post-impressionism to abstract expressionism, and in the process brought that heroic moment in the...

The survey began with some of the glass master's oldest pieces, from the 1970s, and ended with several hot-from-the-furnaces items. Michael De Marsche, president of the Fine Arts Center, orchestrated the exhibit, which ended up being the biggest hit in the institution's seventy-year history, attracting more than 80,000 visitors.
