Did You Know?

Carlsen’s son Dines also became a professional artist, and the two exhibited together several times.

Description

Through luminescent color, filtered light, and a subtle evocation of atmosphere, Carlsen created a quiet, meditative mood in Wood Interior. The delicate trees, trickling brook, and soft bed of the forest floor invite a tranquil retreat from bustling city life. The painting’s lighter palette is complemented by its custom-made gilded frame, which is crafted in muted 16-karat gold rather than the standard, more vibrant 18-karat.
