Estate Representation

John F. Carlson (1875-1947)

Letter from John F. Carlson to Mr. Vose

Vose Galleries represents the estate of John F. Carlson, a landscapist of immense importance and influence who was an early developer of the art movement in Woodstock, NY. Carlson was a truly outdoor painter who sought to give each canvas a mood, an overall tone or feeling of the moment. His book, Carlson’s Guide to Landscape Painting, first published in 1928, remains an important text on the subject to this day. Vose first exhibited his work in 1978, the first time his art had been available to the public in thirty-five years. Since then there have been three more Carlson exhibits at Vose Galleries, in 1980, 1982 and again in 2010.
