INSIDE GREETING: With deepest sympathy.

This serene Impressionist scene of the moon reflecting over the water is fitting for a simple sympathy card. The original painting we adapted was a 1913 piece by Emil Carlsen, aptly named Moonlight Scene. See this image as an art print!

Emil Carlsen (1853–1932) was a Danish-American Impressionist painter renowned for his luminous seascape and landscape compositions. Born in Copenhagen, he immigrated to the United States in 1872 to pursue his artistic aspirations. Initially settling in Chicago, he traveled to Paris for further studies before returning to America's east coast. His artistic style evolved and was influenced by European Impressionism and American Tonalism. He is best known for his masterful use of light and shadow, which imbued his paintings with tranquility and beauty. During periods of financial struggle, he diversified into engraving and still-life painting. Despite facing challenges, Carlsen earned acclaim as a respected art teacher. His legacy endures, and he is celebrated as a master of American Impressionism.
