ECA Notes:

American Art News, “Emil Carlsen’s Paintings”, March 10, 1923.
“…his one landscape ‘Goodwin’s Ridge,’ which is filled with the hot sunlight of a summer’s afternoon.”

New-York Tribune, “Recent Works by Emil Carlsen, Mrs. Sears and Others”, March 11, 1923.
“Very attractive, too, is ‘Goodwin’s Ridge,’ a landscape in which the treatment of trees and the grassy foreground just trembles on the verge of bringing back the feathery touch of Alden Weir. But this revival does not quite come off.”

New York Evening Post, “Paintings by Carlsen”, March 17, 1923
“‘Goodwin’s Ridge’ and the clouds of ‘Summer Light’ are most pleasing landscapes and handled in a freer manner than the paintings of coast and sea.”

New York Times, New York, NY, “Emil Carlsen’s Exhibition.”, March 11, 1923.
“Certainly ‘Goodwin’s Ridge,’ in his exhibition at the Macbeth Galleries is a delightful xx xx xx high in key and close in value.
