“That there is variety in American art none can deny. What could be more opposite in substance, character, treatment, than F. W. Benson’s breezy summer picture A Family Group and Charles W. Hawthorne’s Provincetown-Portuguese man and boy Refining Oil; or again than Emil Carlsen’s Midsummer Storm…”

“At the opposite end of the scale, is one of Mr. Carlsen’s latest works, Midsummer Storm, very light, with long breakers following each other to shore, the air filled with spray, mounting to unknown heights, and a bit of dramatic interest in a lifeboat struggling through the breakers. For all its ethereal tone the forms are clearly defined. The picture illustrates the method adopted by Mr. Carlsen in his large canvasses of using tempera for underpainting. By this means a firm and all-pervasive effect of light is obtained.”

…”In Gallery XV are hung five more important works of Mr. Carlsen, and twenty-three sketches. In the center is the largest and one of the most important pictures in the exhibition. This is entitled Midsummer Storm, and shows the mass of turbulent water in the center; a little to the left is seen the prow of a tiny boat which has apparently been wrecked. The storm is so spontaneous and so transient that one can almost feel the sunshine behind the clouds. This quality gives again a most luminous effect to the clouds, which is reflected on the white of the waves and imparts a warmth to the entire composition.”…
