Opening event:


Beginning August 1, 2022 and continuing to September 30, 2022, Salmagundi will present Emil. Carlsen. : Private Collections, one of 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 as well as long time dealers.

The show will present approximately 35 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 fellow Salmagundian’s and contemporaries Childe Hassam and William Merritt Chase.  Approximately 95% of all Carlsen works are owned privately with less than 100 works part of museum collections.  Salmagundi is proudly one of the few institutions to own the artist’s work in their permanent collection.  

Five unique still-life props used by Emil and his son Dines are included within the exhibition.  Some of the props where used for the still-life paintings presented.

A special still-life from Carlsen’s son, Dines, will demonstrate the influence of Emil on his son’s work.  Dines was a child painting prodigy and his work stands tall next to his father’s.

From Salmagundi’s palette collection, the largest American artist palette collection in the world, Emil Carlsen’s palette will accompany the exhibition.  The palette is a rare example in our collection of an artist showing the use of only primary colors and white.

The exhibition will display works by the artist from 1876 to the artist death in all genre including: still-life, landscape, portrait, marine painting and studies and sketches.
