In late August and September 2022, the Salmagundi Museum of American Art will present Emil. Carlsen. : Private Collections, the largest New York exhibition of Danish-American artist Emil Carlsen (1848-1932) in nearly fifty years.  It will feature works drawn from several prominent private collectors of the artist’s works.

The show presents over 75 works by Carlsen, a past member of the Salmagundi and former president of the club.  Emil Carlsen’s works were rarely collected by museums, unlike his friends and contemporaries Hassam Childe and William Merritt Chase who were also club members.  Approximately 95% of all Carlsen works are owned privately with less than 100 works part of museum collections.  Salmagundi Museum of American Art is proudly one of the few museums to own the artist’s work in their permanent collection.

The exhibition will display works by the artist covering his entire career and in all genre including: still-life, landscape, portrait, religion, marine painting and more.
