TRANSCRIPTION

…”The Art Institute of Chicago is very happy to own a “Still Life” by Emil Carlsen. This is the picture of just a common kitchen kettle with a dish cloth hanging down the side, but it is like Millet’s genre paintings. It shows us what beauty there is in the things we see every day and do not stop to think are beautiful.”…

…”Still Life. Emil Carlsen.
