Emil Carlsen (American, 1853-1932)


Also known as:  Carlsen, S. Emil; Carlsen, Sören Emil; Carlsen, Soren Emil

Birth Place: Copenhagen (København commune, Denmark)

Considered an American Impressionist, Soren Emil Carlsen immigrated to the United States from Denmark in 1872. Although best known for his still lifes and even dubbed "The American Chardin," he branched out later in his career and painted luminous, poetic landscapes and seascapes in both New England and California. Carlsen's mature style features feathery brushwork and a nuanced palette of soft greens. His works are featured in museums throughout the country, notably the Art Institute of Chicago; National Museum of American Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia; and San Diego Museum of Art.
