ECA Notes:
– Painted in St. Thomas in 1913.
– There is a figurative painting called The Caribbean as well and it is not clear if some of these citations belong to that work.

– New York Tribune, New York, NY, “At the Ferargil Gallery…“, November 16, 1919, Section 3-3
“At the Ferargil Gallery…the only canvas of his in this show which from its title would seem to be associated with a definite corner of the world is entitled…”The Caribbean.” This is one way of his hinting that he was interested in painting before anything else a mass of color, the radiant blue of sea and sky. He is essentially a colorist, enamored of sensuous beauty.”

– The American magazine of art [Art and progress], The American Federation of Arts, New York, NY, “The National Academy’s ninety-third annual exhibition“, volume 9, number 7, May, 1918, page 288-291, not illustrated.
…”Emil Carlsen was particularly well represented by a marine, a picture of the Caribbean sea as seen from the Island of St. Thomas, begun some time ago but only
lately finished.”…
