TRANSCRIPTION

…”There are only eleven pictures in Gallery V, but almost every one of them may be characterized a masterpiece. On the south wall, opposite the entrance from the Sculpture Court, at the sides of the doorway to Gallery II, are…Moonlight, Windham Hill, by Emil Carlsen, N.A….

Mr. Carlsen’s painting is a work of great subtlety and beauty. It is exceedingly simple in composition, but is wonderfully true to nature. The full moon lately risen, illuminates masses of cumulus clouds floating in the sky and casts a silvery sheen over the expanse of landscape. This is a picture which is not fully seen in the moment. It grows upon one the longer he regards it. Mr. Carlsen undoubtedly is destined to rank as one of the highest exponents of landscape painting in this country. He is distinctively individual in vision, interpretation, and expression. This picture is a veritable master piece and years hence will be far more highly appreciated than it is to-day.

Mr. Carlsen has another picture in this gallery, in the center of the west wall, with the title, Summer Clouds. This is a marine view, with white-crested waves washing upon the beach, under a luminous blue sky filled with cumulus clouds full of sunlight and opalescent coloring. There is a freshness and crispness in this representation—and moisture in the air. As in the moonlight picture, we feel the very spirit of the scene and of the hour. Mr. Carlsen’s picture, The Surf, which will be remembered from last year’s exhibition, recently was awarded the Third Carnegie Medal and a $500 cash prize at the exhibition of the Carnegie Institute this year.”…
