Foreword

If one were asked to characterize the art of Emil Carlsen by a single word, that word would probably be “reticent.” For whether he paints marines, portraits or still life, his work is invariably distinguished by this, today, rather rare quality. It does not shout its message, nor does it declare it through spectacular effect. To the contrary it is quiet in tone, beautifully restrained, exquisitely finished.

Emil Carlsen is a master craftsman. He comands his medium, and he has the capacity of a genius for taking pains. Every picture he paints is rendered with infinite care and measures, as far as he can make it, the limit of his ability. Never to him is a work good enough. Because he is so expert a painter he keenly enjoys painting, and without exception this pleasure in production finds expression in his work, and yet there are few outstanding painters of the present time who so skillfully conceal their art. In Mr. Carlsen’s pictures technique never intrudes. The painter’s cleverness is not forced upon the observer. Instead the beauty of the subject and its profound significance are made manifest. This is first and last and always the message Mr. Carlsen’s paintings convey. Even when they are of commonplace objects—pans and jugs and onions or the like—they are beautiful, setting forth lovely nuances of color, delicately adjusted relations of light and shade, wonderful surface textures exquisitely rendered. And with all, he is a virile painter. His art, while studied and reserved, is in the best sense robust, positive.

Dines Carlsen, Emil Carlsen’s son, at the age of fifteen exhibited two small still-life pictures at the National Academy of Design and has twice a year since exhibited his work at that institution. He was awarded the third and also the second Hallgarden Prizes, and at twenty one was made an associate of the Acadamy. The Corcoran Gallery of Art, the John Herron Museum of Indianapolis, and the Portland Museum of Fine Arts have acquired examples of his work.”
