Emil Carlsen was often described as a perfectionist. His work is challenging to examine because his techniques and aspirations were sophisticated and abstract, yet his goal was a simple, decorative effect. Forest Glade in Sunlight, Falls Village, CT reflects Eliot Clark’s description of the artist’s landscapes when he wrote. “Thus lines of rest appeal to him more than lines of action, lines symbolical of heavenward reaching, of quiet and repose. In the woods it is the repeated upright that becomes the motive of the composition – silver, slender trees seen against a background of cool gray-greens, while the sunlight plays upon the warmer ground of nature’s carpet.”

Carlsen was born in Copenhagen. Denmark and immigrated to the United States in 1872. He was greatly influenced by Chardin as is evident in his still-life work, He taught at the National Academy of Design and was elected a National Academician in 1906. His career remains one of the most impressive ot any American painter with prizes and exhibitions too numerous to list.
