Carlson's Guide to Landscape Painting has been in print for over 75 years and has become a canonical guide for students of landscape painting. The book covers various aspects of landscape painting that Carlson believed to be fundamental, including the emotional properties of line and mass in the composition, as well as the quality of light and unity of tone. In 1911, Carlson succeeded Birge Harrison as the director of the Woodstock Art Association, and under his reign, membership was at its peak, with over two hundred students enrolled.
The topography of the Catskills inspired Carlson's best-known works, and Winter Morning Mists is typical of the artist's snow-covered, woodland landscapes. The compositional strength of the landscape is enhanced by the deeply contrasting colors - the dark trees, white snow, and golden grass.
Estimate: $20,000 - $30,000.
