“Night at Windham is an example of how beautiful is his [Emil Carlsen’s] art when his craft has not overpowered his sentiment for light and for tree forms and his memories of enchanting experience.  Carlsen might have been a poet-painter if he had not made so great reputation as an imitator of the surfaces of objects.”

The Brooklyn Daily Eagle, Brooklyn, NY, “Art Calendar: Timely Note and Comment“, April 19, 1910, page 26.
“In his earlier style is Night-Old Windham.  a nocturne in moonlight, the faint light bringing out softly the trunks of great trees and a porter’s lodge on the property of Mr. Carlsen’s next-door friend, J. Alden Weir.  In its depth and luminosity of shadows it is restful and no one would doubt the judgement pf the committee that awarded for it the Webb proze in the Society of Artists.”
