Why We Love It

Although best known for his still lifes, Carlsen painted seascapes and landscapes with great sensitivity. The loose fluid brushwork, subdued palette, and soft lighting of this quick landscape sketch are all typical of Carlsen’s delicate impressionist style.

The Value

This is a little sweetheart painting. It is priced very attractively for new and seasoned collectors alike.
