Soren Emil Carlsen
Marsh Landscape

About

This exceptional serene marsh landscape, probably on Long Island Sound, NY, was painted by Dutch artist Emil Soren Carlsen (1848-1932). Carlsen was born in Copenhagen, Denmark. He studied architecture at the Danish Royal Academy before emigrating to Chicago at age 19. He worked as an architectural draughtsman, and then traveled in Europe to study the Old Masters and also enrolled at the Academie Julian in Paris. Returning to Chicago, he taught at the newly formed Chicago Art Institute, and this activity was followed by periods of living in Boston and New York, but in 1887, he moved to San Francisco to be Director of the California School of Design. There he introduced his students to the work of his New York associates including Augustus Saint-Gaudens, J Alden Weir, and John LaFarge. A painter of still lives as well as landscapes, Emil Carlsen was especially noted for his still lives of humble everyday objects in the tradition of 17th-century Dutch painters. His methods were precise and labor intensive with much scraping, painting, and then scraping again with a build up of impastos. He perceived art as pure aesthetics with its only language being color, masses, and rhythms of line. Oil on canvas, signed lower left, titled Marsh Landscape, on two verso gallery labels (St. Louis Art Museum and William Varieka Fine Arts Ltd ), and housed in a spectacular period gessoed giltwood frame. Dimensions: 31 in h x 36 in w, actual; 45 in h x 50 in w, framed.
