Description: EMIL CARLSEN (American, 1853-1932) Spring, 1915 Oil on canvas on board Signed lower right to verso on panel 16 x 20 inches Other Notes: Danish born painter, Soren Emil Carlsen, was a gifted artist who in his later years devoted his talent to paint the Connecticut landscape. Influenced by the impressionists, Carlsen's landscapes are full of light and use a soft, pastel pallet. Some of his works, with muted natural tones, have been classified as tonalist. Carlsen's paintings, whether they are still lifes, marine scenes or landscapes are all delicately crafted with an austerity of color and delicate surfaces. Carlsen received the Gold Medal at the Louisiana Purchase Exhibition, St. Louis, 1904; was a member of the National Academy of Design, the New York Society of American Artists and the New York Arts Club. Among the collection that include Emile Carlsen works are the Metropolitan Museum of art and The Art Institute of Chicago.
