Larsen Art Auction to Offer Work by George Hitchcock, Birger Sandzén, and Others This SpringApr 17, 2021 13:00 EDT
Born in Rhode Island, 19th-century painter George Hitchcock gained notoriety a continent away, at the Salon in Paris, for his painting of a Dutch garden. Collectors will have an opportunity to own a piece by the internationally recognized artist in Larsen Art Auction‘s upcoming spring sale. Double White Tulips by George Hitchcock shows well-organized rows of white and red tulips framed by a windmill in the background.
Collectors can also consider Birger Sandzén’s Autumn Harmony. Sandzén made the opposite trip of George Hitchcock, emigrating from Europe to America. He would eventually teach at Bethany College in Kansas and become an influential painter in the region. Autumn Harmony depicts the Smoky Hill River, which flows from eastern Colorado to Junction City, Kansas, where it joins the Kansas River. In the painting, trees present a wide spectrum of changing autumnal leaves, from bright green to fiery red.
Rounding out the top lots is Dan Ostermiller’s A Friend Indeed, a bronze sculpture of two rabbits showing each other affection. This piece was one of only six produced in a limited edition in 1985. View each of the lots and register to bid on Bidsquare.
