10 Birger Sandzen Works on Auction Block in Wichita this Weekend

This work by Birger Sandzen is representative of his painting style but is not included in Saturday's auction.

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Fans of Kansas artist Birger Sandzen will be able to bid on 10 of his works later this month. Sandzen taught in Lindsborg from 1824 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 Wichita Eagle reports 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.
