The mountain occupies the entire middle and foreground. There is one dark tree overlapped by a light color tree in the foreground middle right.

ECA Notes:
– It is unclear if the 1913 State Fair exhibition showed this painting but based on that there are so few mountain paintings by Carlsen and that this painting was sold by another Texas Gallery later it makes sense.  The catalog lists the painting as Autum hill at Windham.  Needs more info to confirm.
– This is Windham, CT.
