He later exhibited at the Royal Academy and the Royal Institution. In 1896, an exhibition of 59 of his paintings titled ‘The Home of our English Wild Flowers’ was held at the Dowdeswell Galleries in London. Carline died in Assisi, Italy, in 1920. All three of his children were also artists. Notably, his son Richard, who was a landscape and figure painter and served as an official war artist during World War I, in Palestine, Persia and India.
