Gallery Talk: Dines Carlsen: In His Own Manner
Aug 07, 2021
2:00pm - 3:00pm PST
Event date

Join Director of Collections, Exhibitions, and Programs Leslie Anne Anderson in the gallery as we explore Dines Carlsen: In His Own Manner.

In 1916, American artist William Merritt Chase saw the work of fifteen-year-old Dines Carlsen exhibited at the National Academy of Design, and he predicted “a future of great brilliancy” for the teenaged artist. Dines’s father, Danish-born artist (Søren) Emil Carlsen, had risen to prominence as a skilled painter of still lifes, seascapes, landscapes, and portraits. Because the Carlsens shared a studio and the spotlight, reviews focused on their familial bond. Upon the death of his father in 1932, Dines relocated permanently to northwestern Connecticut, where he developed a style distinct from his famous father.

In this dynamic exhibition, visitors will enjoy a rotating selection from the collection of the National Nordic Museum, which received a gift of more than 900 works by the artist in 2020.    

Cost: Free with admission, RSVP required
