Carlsen, Dines (American, 1835-1932)
Dines Carlsen, born in New York in 1901, son of renowned artist Soren Emil Carlsen, painted sensitive, impressionistic still lifes, portraits, and landscape series, especially of the American Southwest. Trained in the visual arts by his father, Dines Carlsen’s talent was evident early in his life; at the age of fourteen, the National Academy held an exhibition of his work, and in his eighteenth and twenty-second years of life, he was honored with the Julius Hallgarten Prize. Members of the Grand Central Art Galleries, Dines and Emil Carlsen were exhibited in a 1968 retrospective. The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts also frequently exhibited his work. Devoted to the arts, Carlsen expressed his deep appreciation for chamber music during his time as president of Mountain Music. (Dearinger 86). His wife, Florence, established the Emil and Dines Carlsen Award to annually commemorate the best still life painting in the National Academy of Design (Dearinger 87).
