Sivgard Hansen was mainly a landscape painter, specializing in open snow-covered tracts of countryside, deserted, or peopled by a few distant figures. The real subject of these arcadian emptinesses is the piercingly clear Nordic light in which they bathe, and the coloured shadows cast on the snow. He was a master of technically difficult effects of diffused and refracted light; and also a master of composition – the spectator is often drawn into his work by a path or road winding back into the painting, and by the low viewpoint he favoured. His spring and summer landscapes are equally skilful; he was adept at recreating texture: grass, rushes, scrub and sand, the shadows again picked out in pure colour. He painted equally well-realized interiors.
