“In pure oils is Late September, with pale trees, sunny foreground and, again, Mr. Carlsen’s etherial sky, in which clouds seem to melt into the air.”

“…Late September, by Emil Carlsen. For the latter the full light of day in the gallery is too powerful; it needs artificial or subdued light. It shows a great white cloud, shooting upward, yielding in the horizon to a tender purple, against which trees stand revealed, all harmonized in masterly way.”
