Carlson’s Autumn Morning, painted in 1912 and set in New Jersey, according to Vose Galleries’ 1980 exhibition catalogue, is a charming example of his philosophy on landscape painting that he imparted to his students. The gradation of light across the different planes in the scene creates a beautifully coherent composition, as hazy clouds diffuse the sun’s beams, like a pane of frosted glass, over the harmonious earthy tones of the rural setting.
