Sandzen Believes Simple Artistry
Only Can Make WorksPermanent

By Miriam
"Painting as simply and directly'
as possible, with permanent pig-
ments and no varnishes, makes
paintings permanent," said Sven
Birger Sandzen, professor of art,
history and director of the art
school of Bethany college, Linds-
borg, Kan., in an interview yester-
day.
Professor Sandzen is visiting the'
University and has his studio in
the Architectural building. He was
born in Blidsberg, Sweden, and be-
came interested in America while;
studying art under Aman-Jean in
Paris. In 1894, he accepted the po-
sition at Bethany college.
Professor Sandzen's exhibition in
the Architectural building consists
for the most part of scenes of Wyo-
ming, Coloradc, Utah and Kansas.
"Coloring is very important in the
art of paint expression," he assert-
ed. "Briliant color is an artistic
emotion expressed, and colors that
are mixed are darker."
Unlike Whistler, he avoids over-
mixing, using linseed oil and a few
drops of turpentine. This, used on
a dry hard canvass, applying only
one coat and no varnish, gives a
lasting impression of the beauty he
imparts with such vividness.
His paintings carry the same feel-
ing as poetry. Essentially modern,
but with a maturity acquired from
self-expression in an individual
way, he retains his love of beauty
without distortion.
Logan lake, Utah, is the theme of
an oil he has just completed. Sym-
metrically designed, with the color
that is so individual, it is capably
expressive of landscapes familiar in
the West.
Professor Sandzen is accomplish-
ed in interpreting his motives in
lithography, wood-cuts, water-col-
or, and etching as well as oil.
A lithoglaph, "Margaret's ,Crick,"
is extremely interesting in its appli-
cation to his daughter Margaret
who is studying art, and is applying
her brush with a very forceful im-
pression. The creek is on their
home in Kansas. When he visual-
ized it on paper, it was a fitting ti-
tle.

L. Russell.
Wyoming, is a painted reason for
his enthusiasm for a National park
recently opened.
"Of all the west, Utah is the place
of color. Its vivid reds and yellows
are aided only by light, the color-
ing is there and not an illusion."
"Silent Streams," a little wood-
engraving, is rich in its black and
white. His etching is exquisite, and
as so many have pointed out is
delicate in expressing the strength
of the elemental. Especially to be,
noted is the etching "Mountain
Barns."
Not only in oil, water-color, lith-
ography, wood - engraving, and
etching is Professor Sandzen an
artist in every sense of the word,
but also in designs. Designs play a
great part in the grouping of mass
on the canvass. But his sense of
design carries him into the field of
jewelry design. Two rings carry-
ing out his design motif are to be
prized not only for their unique-
ness, but for the same indefinable
thing he knows so well to work out
in his pictures. One ring, a design
of two oak leaves and an acorn, is
raised on a plain wide band of
gold. The other, a polished jaspar
of rich maroon which he found in
Kansas, is held up by a half-open
sunflower, the State flower of Kan-
sas. This ring was made by Harry
Dixon, a well-known craftsman,
brother of Maynard Dixon. the art-
ist.
Professor Sandzen is as forceful,
charming, quiet overlying vigor and
love of the elemental, as are his
expressions.

"Every day in every way they get better and better" -
For as they walk out of the store in droves, so must we keep
the wires hot ordering fresh supplies, and this latest shipment
seems to have reached the climax. Never have we seen such
remarkable dresses for so little money-and we were never more
sincere in our lives.
