– 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.  Weir’s work had a profound influence on Carlsen’s landscape work.  Emil believed Weir to be the greatest living artist of their time and said as much in a memorial book printed about the artist after his death in 1919.  This work reveals Weir’s Tonalist leaning which Carlsen explored while living with Weir and his family.  Carlsen would take these original Tonalist ideas and expand upon them soon after.  Landscape, ca.1905, represents the early stage of Carlsen’s Tonalist phase.
