Biography

Sigurd Swane, whose wife Christine and son Lars were also painters, studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Art at København. He was influenced by the work of Fauvism when he stayed at Paris in 1907 and, after his return home, began a series of paintings of woodlands, viewed from the interior, and conspicuous for the use of green, yellow and blue. He became one of the most famous colorists in Denmark. In his portraits Swane often used a setting with a background of woods to create an intimate atmosphere.

He later lived on a farm in the country and started a long-term series of landscape paintings and flower compositions. From 1947 he often painted in Portugal.
