“Carlsen at Folsom’s.
It is an eventful week that brings together the annual showing of Horatio Walker and Emil Carlsen. The former as is said above, has “arrived,” and sometime ago, while Carlsen, good painter as he has always been, has only “struck his true gait,” as it were, the past four years. His display now on at the Folsom Galleries, No. 396 Fifth Ave., through Mar. 11, is a marked advance even on his fine showing of last season. It has more versatility of subject and treatment, and on the whole even more force. That delicious feeling of the salt sea’s spray of windblown beaches, and limitless ocean paths so crisply painted and so true and convincing, is supplemented this year by several low keyed soft colored, almost diaphanous landscapes—which in tenderness of tone and sentiment almost recall Alden Weir, and in poetry and tone, almost Tryon.
Barnacled Rocks—Maine Coast, in its lovely blues and fine distance and air is most alluring. There are again air and distance in The Beach—Skagen, Denmark, while The Open Sea has the cold blues and the keen cold sunlight of the North with the feeling of the restless mere. A Mid-Summer Storm, recalls earlier gray toned canvases, and through it one feels the wind blow and hears the breakers roar. It is the wildness of sea and sky that the artist so well pictures here.
Two plein air presentments of Danish Beechwoods are soft and lovely in color and tender in sentiment, and two vistas in Kew Gardens—England, have the same appreciative treatment and true color and atmosphere.”
