TRANSCRIPTION

“STILL LIFE—Emil Carlsen.
(At the Macbeth Galleries).”

“…the Academy of Design…The other two prizes went to Walter McEwen for the well-painted portrait of himself and to Emil Carlsen for the decorative marine. Surf at Shagon [sic] [should be Skagen].”…

…”At the Macbeth Gallery there have been two shows of much interest: a loan exhibition of the painting by Emil Carlsen and a show of decorative canvases by William Baxter Closson.

Carlsen’s art has not the vitality, the freshness of life. It only indirectly adds to the joy we get from life; it is not an interpretation of the material world; it is to be prized as we prize old brocades. We do not ask old tapestries or silks to give a new reading of life. There is no reason for our demanding it in the case of paintings. Those who are willing to accept art merely for its beautify of texture, line mass, and of tonality will find in Carlsen’s art much to admire. Those who demand a vital relationship between art and the great problems of life will feel that his work dodges the issues of our epoch. Even such should feel the charm of much of the art of Emil Carlsen. It is not cold; it is reserved yet sensuous.”…
