NEW Art Book will include Birger Sandzen
N.Y. Times bestselling authors Les and Sue Fox are doing research for a new book titled "The Art Buyers Handbook" to be published in 2011 or 2012. This book will feature stories of real people who bought valuable art at garage sales, flea markets, local auctions and estate sales. Did you know that a masterpiece by Joseph Decker ("Ripening Pears") was bought at a garage sale in 2001 for $5, and sold to the National Gallery Of Art in 2004...for $1,000,000? If you or someone you know has purchased a genuine painting by Birger Sandzen for a fraction of its AskArt value, we would like to publish your story in our book. Your name will be kept confidential, unless you want us to publish it. The facts must be verified, and we will need photos of your painting (original oil or watercolor, not a print, lithograph or limited edition.) Thank you. Les Fox.

Birger Sandzen "Discoveries"
N.Y. Times bestselling authors Les and Sue Fox are doing research for a new book titled "The Art Buyers Handbook" to be published in 2011 or 2012. If you have ever found an important painting by Birger Sandzen in a garage sale or at a flea market which turned out to be quite valuable, we would like to publish your story in our new book. Your name will remain confidential unless you want us to publish it. Please do not contact us about small paintings or prints. We are only looking for exciting stories of people who "discovered" art which is worth many, many times what they paid for it. All facts must be verified and documented. Thank you. Les Fox / West Highland Publishing / West Highland Art Auction Brokers.

Once A Home
I believe that I have an Original Berger Sandzen in pencil. This does not to appear to be a copy and signiture and title are in pencil. The size 14-1/2 x 11-1/2 Matted and framed. Who knows what I should do with it?
Anyone recall seeing a Sandzen with a three cactus grouping instead of the three tree grouping?
works of Birger Sandzen
I have an original Birger Sandzen charcoal lithograph on paper 13.5" by 18.25 signed by the artist in lower right hand corner (in pencil)- mint condition. It is entitled Carmel Cedars and pictures 3 California Cypress trees on rocky coastline of Carmel, California in impressionist style. Original backing signed by artist and dated 1951 with tag showing it was exhited in the prints room of the california state library.
Given as a gift by the artist (as art professor at Bethany College, Lindsborg, Kansas) to my father's grandparnets, Liebert and Myrtle Lander of Lindsborg, Kansas now deceased, passed on to our family. Recently found in a closet!
Would love to more of Berger Sandzen and his work. We're now curious as to his relationship with my father's grandparents now deceased but originally from Sweden also.
My husband recalls a number of his works hanging in the grandparents' home in Lindsborg- now no longer sure where they all may be.
