Danish by birth and originally trained as an architectural draftsman, Emil Carlsen first came to the United States in 1872. He then traveled to Paris to study painting at the Academie Julien, but had to return to the United States after only six months because of financial difficulties. Upon his return , Carlsen began teaching at the Chicago Art Institute, then lived intermittently in Boston and New York.
In 1887, Carlsen moved to San Francisco to be the Director of the California School of Design, only to resign and move back to New York two years later, tired of the long hours and little pay associated with teaching. Though Carlsen returned to San Francisco in a few months to teach for two more years, he eventually settled in New York City. In New York he received the praise and admiration he deserved as he successfully sold his paintings, was elected to the National Academy of Design, and won numerous awards.”
