American painter Armin Hansen, son of the famous painter of the old Wild West, Herman Wendelborg Hansen (1854-1924), lived for a while in Europe, where he studied extensively, mostly in Stuttgart, München and Paris, and later taught at the prestigious University of California at Berkeley and the California School of Fine Arts in San Francisco. At that time, he was one of the most well-known painters and teachers. Around 1915, he turned towards Impressionist painting, mostly in oil and watercolors and etching. His favorite subjects were the sea, the coast and the fishermen of Monterey, later including Indians of the American West. He had occasionally worked himself as a sailor.
