This week I have been fortunate enough to help authenticate an Emil Carlsen from Denmark. It is very exciting as I just can not contain myself when I see his work in person. I will review with restorers and others to see if we can determine if it is a Chinese fake. Unfortunately, you must be very careful since I am starting to see more and more fake Carlsen's from China.
I would like to thank all those who are expressing interest in the book EMIL CARLSEN: THE COMPLETE KNOWN WORKS. I have been hard at work on the layout. The shear amount of images take hours to manipulate. I hope this is all done soon but, will not rush a book of this importance because it might possibly become the definitive book on his life and work.
This week there is a Dines and Emil Carlsen up at auction. Hopefully I will win the Carlsen as I plan to bid. Sadly the Dines (one of the best from him that I have seen at auction) is out of my price range.
