He rendered these scenes in oil, on the etching plate, and in watercolor, charcoal, and pastel. Celebrated especially as an etcher, Hansen earned a reputation as one of Americas finest practitioners of the medium, which on a national level surpassed his renown as one of Californias preeminent painters. Released in conjunction with the exhibition organized by the Pasadena Museum of California Art in collaboration with the Crocker Art Museum, Armin Hansen: The Artful Voyage presents over two hundred reproductions and photographs, as well as a detailed biography and chronology, depicting Hansens artistic legacy and his love for Montereys fishermen and the setting in which they worked.
