Speaker: Susan Larkin
Independant Art Historian and Scholar
By the time of his death in 1932, Emil Carlsen was represented by paintings in museums across the country. Called “the most accomplished master of still-life painting today,” he had won prestigious awards and critical acclaim. Susan Larkin surveys the varied influences of his work, compares his still lifes with those of his friends J. Alden Weir and Willaim Merrit Chase, and asks what he contributed to the history of still-life paintings in the United States.
