ECA Notes:

– Art Notes, Macbeth Gallery, New York, NY, “We have so long preached…“, November, 1920, Number 71, page 1194-1195, illustrated: b&w on 1195.
…”Emil Carlsen is preparing a one-man show for the three weeks commencing February 8…We have so long preached the doctrine of the desirability of Emil Carlsen’s picture that nothing but a special occasion could excuse repetition now.  This occasion, however, is amply furnished by his approaching one-man show, the first in some years of pictures that will be for sale.  It will provide an opportunity that should not be overlooked by collectors in whose galleries Mr. Carlsen is not already represented.  We own and are now offering one of his finest still-lifes, reproduced on page 1195.”…

– We believe based on the Art Notes from the Macbeth Gallery, this painting was intended to be part of Carlsen’s solo show in 1921 but that it sold before the show from the Art Notes in 1920.

Price History:
1920 – unknown.
