ECA Notes:

The Nation, New York, NY, “Impressions of The Spring Academy.”, 1907, Volume 84, Number 2178, page 297-299.
Canaan Mountain, No. 61, by Emil Carlsen, is a dignified portrayal of a large and simple theme-sky, hill, and plain; but the treatment excites an emotion that it is the province of all true art to evoke. The balance of the above-named elements in the composition is satisfying, the qualities of painting, the actual pigment, are most agreeable, and the color fine.”
