Description Why We Love It:
Emil Carlsen made his reputation in America with the quality of his still life paintings. Peonies with a Kang Hsi Vase is one of the largest and best examples of these works. The lush, saturated colors and beautifully reflected light on the surface of the Chinese porcelain are bravura examples of what led him to acclaim during his lifetime. Much of Emil Carlsen’s work shows the influence of Asian culture on the artist. The inclusion of the beautiful blue and white vase in this monumental painting is a paean to that artistic heritage.

The Value:
This is a large and superior example of the style and subject matter that made Emil Carlsen famous. Additionally, the painting has a strong exhibition record and has never been offered at auction. As such, this painting should always command a premium price.
