ELIOT CANDEE CLARK (AMERICAN, 1883-1980) PENNSYLVANIA
Item Details
Description
ELIOT CANDEE CLARK (AMERICAN, 1883-1980) PENNSYLVANIA LANDSCAPE PAINTING, oil on canvas board, a bucolic scene executed in an impressionistic style, depicting a farm house, barns, and outbuildings situated on a hilltop surrounded by pasture, signed lower right. Inscribed verso "Penna # 9 / Near Sycamore Mills / 1909 / Eliot Clark". Housed in a modern molded giltwood frame. First quarter 20th century. 8 3/8" x 11 1/4" sight, 13 1/4" x 16 1/4" OA.
Provenance: From a Virginia estate collection.
Catalogue Note: Born in New York City, Eliot Candee Clark (1883-1980) traveled extensively in his youth, but eventually settled in Albemarle County, Virginia, where he spent a good deal of the latter period of his life. His father, Walter Clark (1848-1917), was an accomplished landscape painter in his own right, who had studied with George Inness, and the young Eliot would often accompany his father on painting expeditions along the East Coast with fellow artists such as John Henry Twatchman and Edward Potthast. Clark pursued formal study at the Art Students League in New York City and in 1904 left for Europe to continue his training. In Europe, he traveled widely and was exposed to a number of locations, styles, and influences, most notably Monet at Giverny. After a brief period on the East Coast following his return to the United States, Clark ventured to the American West, where he painted scenes in Arizona, New Mexico, California, and Wyoming. In the 1920s he lived and worked in Kent, Connecticut, and eventually made his way to Albemarle County, Virginia in 1932. Between trips to New York City and the Far East, Clark continued in his career as an artist and teacher, making Virginia his permanent home after 1959. A member of the National Academy for over forty years, Clark served as President of the institution for two years. He also taught courses at the University of Virginia and even served on the Board Of Visitors at the university. Widely admired, Clark exhibited a great deal during his life, receiving numerous awards and accolades as well. His work is today included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the National Academy of Design, the Baltimore Museum of Art, and the Dayton Museum of Art, among others._x000D_
Originally a tonalist in the manner of his father and George Inness, Eliot Clark gravitated towards Impressionism after his stint in Europe. The present example, dated "1909", is intriguing in this respect as it is an early work for the artist and clearly demonstrates his nascent interest in Impressionist techniques and styles. Sycamore Mills is located in Delaware County, Pennsylvania just west of Philadelphia, a picturesque area of the state that Eliot Clark had likely visited as a teenager during a trip with his father.
