At the Macbeth Galleries the familiar charms of Emil Carlsen’s marines and still life paintings are again disclosed.  The refinement of his technique, the delicacy of his tone and color have ever won him an admiring following.  The pots and pans, porcelains and jades, fruits and flowers which usually serve for his arrangements seem secondary interest to the rare color harmonies and textural delights which he evolves.  His seascapes, although of such differing nature, possess like qualities of tone and color and invariably disclose white-capped sea and cloud flecked sky radiant in the circumambient blueness of midsummer.  It is never a surging, smiting sea that Mr. Carlsen paints, nor any ominous haze that he scatters over it.  It is just a world serenely smiling like some powdery blue Chinese bowl, content in the knowledge of its beauty.  Several landscapes bring forth the same tender sentiment, but tree trunks and foliage have not spoken to this artist as have the curling waves and azure heavens, nor disclosed their inmost beauty.
