– We are unable to locate a catalog for the 1932 Memorial exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum. It may be because Carlsen had just past and it was all done rather quickly. For proof of the exhibition and the works shown we are using the museum’s own image of the exhibition and the Archive of Works by Emil Carlsen Compiled by Dines Carlsen which makes notes in the margins of which works were included. Also it appears that the works shown very closely match the show Carlsen had at the Macbeth Gallery a month before. We believe these are most probably the ones shown, minus the ones that sold with O Ye of Little Faith which was shown at the National Academy just before as well.
