Hi Library-

Thanks for answering my call. As per our conversation I am emailing you an inquiry to help me figure out what specific work of the artist Emil Carlsen the Whitney owns.

I run the archive of the artist’s work (http://emilcarlsen.org) and would like a visual representation of the work to display on the site (it is a non-commercial site for educational use only) and any provenance, exhibition history, etc. about the work.
