"By the early 1920s, Hansen had achieved a mastery of the medium and a maturity of expression that he sustained and refined until he gave up the art in 1939. A work in which his mastery of the traditional aspects of drawing is made clear is the prizewinning and frequently reproduced 'Sardine Barge'. The foreshortening of the barge and the deft transitions between the boats, the watery reflections, and Monterey Bay yield a natural and unaffected harmony of light and mass." White/1986.
