“Museum Gets 6 New Oil Paintings
CAPTION: Henry Golden Dearth rendered this seascape, Coast Scene With Breaking Waves, now hanging in the Evansville Museum.
CAPTION: Still Life With Chinese Vases is the title of this oil by Emil Carlsen, a recent gift to the Museum.
Six new oil paintings have been presented to the Evansville Museum by Arnold Wood Jr., a New York broker.
The paintings represent the period of 1900-1920, and are by Emil Carlsen (two) and Henry Golden Dearth (four). Their works hang in the Chicago Art Institute, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and other collections.
Carlsen, a native of Denmark, is particularly noted for his sea scenes. One of his pictures here is called The Open Sea, and is a vivid portrayal of lonely expanses of the ocean with wildly breaking waves. The other is entitled Still-Life With Chinese Vases, displaying his draftsmanship and his employment of simple gradations in color Dearth, an American who studied in Paris, shows in his work the influence of French Impressionists. His Canal Scene With Avenue of Trees shows an entirely different technique—misty and soft; with muted colors.
Another Dearth work here is Coast Scene With Breaking Waves, showing the contrast of the waves breaking into airy foam against the dark rocks of the rugged coast.
A seventh painting from the Wood collection is on loan to the Museum. It’s a portrait of Wood’s mother, by August Frantzen, a well-known portrait painter of the early 20th Century.”
