ECA Notes:
– This painting is unusual for Carlsen and that there is no provenance makes it suspect.

– Condition Report: Unlined canvas; faint craquelure and minor stretcher bar marks; frame wear with evidence of rubbing in lower right corner; under UV light, there appears to be a small spot of in-painting to the left of the urn.

Price History:
2016 – $25,000 to $35,000 USD (auction estimate)
