ECA notes:
Still life of roses in vase, painted most likely in New York or Boston, features a black tinted glass serpentine handled vase with roses.  Carlsen owned the vase since at least 1877 when it appeared in his work American beauties.  The paint was thick and represented Boston School style of the time, influenced by his friend and fellow painter William Merritt Chase.  What makes Still life of roses in vase of special interest is the level at which Carlsen’s painting technique and palette developed within those ten years.  His colors became lighter and he started to shed the Boston style opting for French and European influences.  The work is one of the earliest known instances of Carlsen’s use of a textile or carpet as a still-life background.  Using textiles behind still-life objects would become one of Emil Carlsen’s most defining traits in his later and most sought works of the 1920s.  He first began exploring the use of textile backgrounds a year earlier in 1886 when he used in two known examples.  Still life of roses in vase is the third known instance of his textile background use.  -ECA

– The painting verso demonstrates Carlsen’s favored method of butt jointed stretchers versus the more common mitred ones used today.  The stretcher configuration is common on original Carlsen works. -ECA
