Halfred Johan Tygesen (1890-1951)
Halfred Tygesen was born in Copenhagen, Denmark and came to Canada in 1926.  Before immigrating to Canada, he attended art school in Denmark and became a member of the Danish Royal Academy. In Canada he introduced a technique for pastel "painting" using a liquid pastel, the creation of Denmark 's Professor Karl Madsen whose pastels are guaranteed not to fade. Tygesen's work is similar to that of the renowned American pastel artist William Henry Chandler (1854-1928) of New York. Tygesen's modern style, however, is all his own and his depiction of shadow and light is magnificent.  Tygesen also painted in oil.
He travelled across the country painting scenes from Stanley Park in Vancouver to the Ontario countryside.  He also painted Danish landscapes and seascapes based on drawings he had done before he moved to Canada.  While his main body of work was in pastels his oil paintings are hard to come by.
