Emil (Soren Emil) Carlsen, Manner of (Danish/ American, 1848 or 53 - 1932) : Floral Still Life. Oil on heavy cardboard, signed lower right, framed.
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.
