…”For the first time in many years Mr. Emil Carlsen has an exhibition all to himself, one at the Macbeth gallery in which he presents fifteen of his pictures. These include, naturally, several of the studies of still life which from the beginning of his career have been expected from him as a matter of course. For a long time, indeed, he was known in no other branch of art. He came into view as a man with a rare gift for the portrayal of inanimate objects, and, by the same token, the
painter of beautiful surfaces…Even while we respond to their beguiling appeal we find ourselves wishing that his views of landscapes were bigger and freer; that he had broadened his definition of ground, tree and cloud forms.  Image Caption: THE MOONSTONE (From the Painting by Emil Carlsen at the Macbeth Gallery)”…
