Notes:
– Somehow this painting was thought to be of Charleston Harbor when in fact it is Denmark’s Kattegat.

…”On the center panel, placed between these two pictures just described, was seen the impressive Moonlight on the Kattegat, which recently was purchased by the Buffalo Fine Arts Academy for its permanent collection. This work is full of poetry and is most appealing in its beauty. It is in character similar to the one by Mr. Carlsen, shown in the Fourth Annual Exhibition of Selected Works by American Artists last year, which was, it will be remembered, lent by Mr. George A. Hearn of New York, who afterwards presented it to the Metropolitan Museum. It will be interesting to know in this connection that the Kattegat and Skagerak are names for the ocean on either side of the most northern part of Denmark, which is one of Mr. Carlsen’s favorite sketching places.”…
