Svend Aage Melchior Hansen, Rural Landscape With Cottage

An impressionistic landscape painting depicting a rustic old farm building with a thatched roof by Danish artist Svend Aage Melchior Hansen (1908-1978).

Melchior Hansen painted in a distinctive style often with broad marks to convey light and depth. He frequently produced landscapes and scenes featuring farm buildings and it’s plausible that he lived a rural life.

The painting is signed/dated in the lower right.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
