“Three canvasses by Emil Carlsen reveal the temper of that master painter whose devotion to beauty is significant. Two of these paintings are of still life, one of the sea. In both of the still life paintings he has combined brass and pottery in an exquisite harmony of pale gold and dull blue, reminiscent of the harmony dear to the heart of Vermeer so long ago. Emil Carlsen’s reserve is marvelous, he is a master of texture, and so sensitively portrays the gradations of light that each painting is filled with a vibrant envelope of atmosphere. To so capture the beauty of the humble object is the privilege of only the very great.”
