…”EMIL CARLSEN (American, born Denmark, 1853-1932)
Along with William Merritt Chase, Emil Carlsen was acclaimed as one of this country’s foremost painters of still life. Although both anists painted a wide range of subjects within this genre, Carlsen was best known for his paintings of dead fowl, while Chase was celebrated for his paintings of dead fish. Their styles of painting were dissimilar: Carlsen’s sharp focus was inspired by the work of Jean-Baptiste Chardin (1699-1779), whereas Chase was more indebted to the freely painted still life compositions of Antoine Voilon (1833-1900).
Chase and Carlsen were active members of the same important art organizations,, such as the Society of American Anists and the National Academy of Design. They knew each other on a more intimate basis as members of the smaller art clubs, like the Salmagundi Club. Chase was also interested in the still life paintings by Emil Carlsen’s son Dines, and owned at least one work by the young artist, Dutch Bottles and Jug. And the year after Chase’s death, Emil Carlsen purchased Chase’s large oil sketch The Tenth Street Studio, which was included in the estate sale held at the American Art Galleries in 1917 (No. 197).”…
