Sandzen Works to be Auctioned

Associated Press - February 14, 2017 8:18 am

Fans of Kansas artist Birger Sandzen will be able to bid on 10 of his works later this month.

Sandzen taught in Lindsborg from 1894 until he died in 1954. He created more than 3,000 paintings, 328 prints and countless watercolors and drawings that hang in buildings across Kansas and the world.

The pieces for sale were owned by Emerson and Freda Moore of Wichita. Emerson Moore died last month and his daughter, Terry Moore, decided to auction them. The auction is scheduled Saturday at the Woody Auction Gallery in Wichita.

The collection includes four oil paintings with a starting bid of $7,500 each, three lithographs with a starting bid at $250, one drypoint, one watercolor and one student oil.
