– Emil Carlsen’s work changed after befriending American Impressionist, J. Alden Weir [1852-1919]. Carlsen and his new family stayed with the Weirs at their country home in Windham, CT between around 1904-1906, before buying their own place in Falls Village, CT. The young girl shown in the painting may be Weir’s young daughter (who would have been thirteen or fourteen at the time), Dorothy (Weir) Young [1890-1947]. Dorothy became a well known artist and married a student of Carlsen’s, painter and sculptor, Mahonri Young [1877-1957], the grandson of the founder of the Latter Day Saints, Brigham Young. The work is in colors that Carlsen picked up from Weir and was executed in a style influenced by Weir.
