Dines Carlsen (1901–1966) was an American painter.

Dines Carlsen was the son of the well-known artist Emil Carlsen. He was a student at, and later a member of, the National Academy of Design. He also exhibited frequently at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. He was known particularly for his still lifes, and in his memory his wife established the Emil and Dines Carlsen Award to recognize the Academy's best still life painter annually.[1][2]

Artistic career[edit]

Dines Carlsen was home schooled by his parents. His mother taught him academic subjects and his father instructed him in art. Consequently, his paintings bear a marked resemblance to his father's work. He began exhibiting with the prestigious National Academy of Design in 1915 and he won the Julius Hallgarten Prize twice, in 1919 and 1923. He became an Associate of the National Academy in 1922 and a full member of the National Academy of Design in 1942. Dines Carlsen divided his time between his family's New York home and studio and their home in Falls Village, Connecticut until his father's death in 1933. Thereafter, he lived in Falls River and wintered in Summerville, South Carolina. Carlsen taught students privately in his home. He exhibited his work with the artist's cooperative Grand Central Art Galleries and had solo exhibitions in 1946, 1950 and 1954. Following his death in 1966, Grand Central mounted a dual exhibition of his and his father's work.
