…”As one entered the center north gallery, one was at once impressed by the superb work of Mr. Carlsen, and felt the remarkable atmospheric qualities there expressed. Mr. Carlsen’s subjects vary widely; one feels the joyousness of springtime revealed in the exquisite work entitled The Beechwoods. Here the beauty of the delicate green foliage of the springtime and the white trunks of the trees so characteristic of the Danish woods, are enhanced by the luminous qualities of the foreground and the touch of bluish water to the right; three slender beechwood trees are reflected in the water, and one can see far into the depths of the woods, wich might have been a fitting home for Titania.

Balancing this, on the opposite panel, is another composition of the same trees, Beeches in May, which was lent to the Gallery by A. H. Marks, Esq., of New York City. The density of the forest here also is felt. Both of these pictures were painted in the southern part of Denmark, near Veile.”…
