Sigvard Hansen painted mainly landscapes, but also part of interiors. Eye-catching and idyllic motifs as well as technical skill did Hansen to one of his generation's popular artists. Especially his winter images with blue shadows in the snow caught the attention of his peers. Characteristic of H's work is also the often very detailed foreground.
