World news:

Local news:

– To make ends meet in Paris, in addition to florals, Carlsen would paint still-lifes of fish and game, selling them to other gallery owners and private collectors to supplement his income.
– Tiring of painting floral works for Blakeslee after about two years, in about October of 1886, Carlsen returned to New York City with new influences from Paris—a lighter Impressionist palette, which he would intermittently test in the coming years.
– December of 1886, Emil worked with the hunting and animal painter, Alexander Pope (1849-1924) on a large collaborative painting showing hounds who lost a fox in a hole at the edge of the woods.
– Calling Out the Hounds was shown in Boston and hung in The Boston Tavern and the Hurlburts Hotel, Boston where it is now unlocated. Emil was responsible for the pine forest in the composition and was praised but thought not to have been as good as Pope’s part of the painting.
