Large selection of original art for sale by landscape artist Peter Hagen. Peter Hagen is a Santa Fe landscape artist loved especially for his snow scenes, desert scenes, chamisa paintings, sunset paintings, paintings of the New Mexico sky, Arroyo paintings, and waterscapes. Hagen paints both large scale landscape paintings and miniatures. Motivated by his love of exploration and the challenges presented by changes in light and weather, Hagen captures the atmosphere, space and distance of the New Mexico landscape. Hagen was influenced by Monet’s color palette and looseness, the strength of Van Gogh’s colors, the flowing brush strokes of John Singer Sargent and the loose and colorful style of Joaquin Sorolla. While living in Taos, he studied under Ray Vinella, who helped Hagen develop his palette, and Ned Jacob and befriended painters Walt Gonske and Rod Goebel. Peter Hagen now lives only a block off of Old Pecos Trail, and finds most of his subject matter within an hour radius of Santa Fe. He works on smaller pieces en plein air and paints larger pieces in the studio not far from his home.

Peter Hagen

Hagen loves being able to devote his time to the land. Although it can sometimes be a struggle to capture the New Mexico scenery on canvas, Hagen’s love for the open land makes the process rewarding. He is always excited to explore and find new subjects to paint. He loves the adventure of both finding new vistas and suddenly seeing familiar surroundings with new eyes.
