The International Studio, Volume 18, “American Studio Talk: Exhibition of The National Academy”, 1903.
One of these is a large landscape, May Afternoon by Emil Carlsen. He is better known for his still life pictures, two of which are here, beautiful in tone and texture, finely painted, and invested with the seriousness and dignity which can make the representation of a fish or kettle yield a very high form of aesthetic pleasure. The leaned drawing and brushwork, the same seriousness of feeling, are to be found in this landscape–a grassy upland with a clump of oaks half-way up the slope. It is in dull, cool light, under a sky that has large, billowy gray and white clouds; the big clouds of the upper sky, which leave us in no doubt that we are on an altitude, and that beyond the ridge of ground there is decent and with this sense comes its accompanying sensation of wholesome invigoration

– It is unclear if this is the Late Afternoon which was shown at the St. Louis Exposition, 1904 – would need further visual proof.
