Hansen, Carl (1870-1934)

Carl Hansen was a Danish painter of landscapes.

An accomplished artist, Hansen exhibited frequently at the Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition between 1902 and 1934. Underpinning much of his oeuvre is a traditional approach derived from his studies at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts.

Living predominantly in Helsingør, he painted the local environs with a deft touch - capturing both atmospheric and architectural effects with abundant skill. He also ventured to the Deer Park, Copenhagen, and the forests of North Zealand.

His wooded views are particularly successful and often carry a romantic spirit.
