Series 4: Photographs of Artwork , circa 1885-circa 1930
18 Folders
Box 2

Included here are photographs of primarily Emil Carlsen's paintings of still-lifes and landscapes, with one photograph of a still-life composition later painted by Emil. Also included are one image of a still-life signed and dated by Dines Carlsen, and one image of a landscape by painter J. Alden Weir.
Emil Carlsen's son, Dines Carlsen, learned to paint from his father, and both spent time painting in the same studio. As a result, Dines' paintings mimic Emil's style, making unsigned works difficult to identify. In this collection, there are several photographs of undated landscape paintings by an unidentified artist, though probably painted by either Dines or Emil Carlsen.
Researchers should note that descriptive annotations in quotes were taken verbatim from glass plate sleeves. Also, photographs are described largely by groups, and some photograph descriptions have been added for clarity.
Photographs are arranged by subject. Cross reference numbers have been provided to match copy prints with with their respective glass plate negative originals housed separately in Series 6.
