ECA Notes:

– New-York Tribune, New York, NY, “Recent works by Emil Carlsen, Mrs. Sears and others“, March 11, 1923.
“The beautiful cloud forms filling the sky in his Summer Light, …”

– American Art News, New York, NY, “Emil Carlsen’s paintings“, March 10, 1923.
“…Summer Light, a composition familiar among his past works since it merely includes a solitary figure in a boat on a broad expanse of calm sea overhung by masses of cumulus clouds. But the finer element in this painting is in the reflections of the clouds in the level ocean, faint tones as delicate as the hues of the petals of a cherry bud and as lightly touching the surface of the sea.”

– New York Evening Post, New York, NY, “Paintings by Carlsen“, March 17, 1923
Goodwin’s Ridge and the clouds of Summer Light are most pleasing landscapes and handled in a freer manner than the paintings of coast and sea.”
