He first exhibited still-lifes at age 15 the 91st Annual Exhibition at the Academy in 1916 and the 6th Biennial of the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Carlsen is best known for his still-lifes, but landscapes and coastal scenes were also part of his oeuvre. He traveled throughout the United States, Mexico and South America and many of his landscapes depict what he saw on those travels. He resided at his parent’s home and studio in New York City, but also spent time at their home in Falls Village, Connecticut, where he moved permanently after his father’s death in 1932.
