Eye Candy for Today: Carlsen roses

Still Life with Yellow Roses, Emil Carlsen
Still Life with Yellow Roses, Emil Carlsen

On Google Art Project. Hi-res downloadable file on Wikimedia Commons. Original is in the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, which doesn’t appear to have an image online.

I wish more of Carlsen’s beautifully painterly still life paintings were available in high resolution. For now, I’ll just be glad a few are online. Here’s another on GAP, and my previous Eye Candy post about one in the National Gallery, DC. There is also one online at the Met.

I’ll do a proper post on Carlsen soon.

  1. The meaning of yellow roses.
    Yellow (My Mother’s fave colour): Friendship, Joy, Get Well
    Throughout history, yellow has been closely associated with the sun, making these roses excellent for cheering people up. (It worked for me. Thanks!) Yellow roses send a message of appreciation and platonic love without the romantic subtext of other colors. The color represents feelings of joy and delight.

    Just saw this one at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto. In all its glorious lack of contrast and saturation, this small work glowed amongst the salon-hung wall of maybe 50 paintings from the collection. I jotted myself a note to try to find a good monograph of his paintings. And then of course….here you are already doing the research! Please do let us all know more about Soren Emil Carlsen.
