JAMES CLARK AND JAMES ALBERT CLARK (BRITISH, 1863-1955)
Signed lower left “James Clark & Son, 21 Walbrook St, New North Road N”, in oil on canvas
Item # 807ZXG21A
A very fine painting of a show horse with a cropped tail and proud stance in a carefully detailed stable setting. The navy blanket is monogrammed personally "T.K. A.P.” and the edges highlighted in red, resting over a wall mounted water trough. The floor is layered in fresh and brilliantly depicted hay with a complex array of shadows cascading through the tidy space. It is executed in oil on canvas and we have had it beautifully cleaned and conserved; it is housed in an early gilt frame with glass protecting the canvas. The lower right corner is signed "James Clark & Son, 21 Walbrook St, New North Road, N"
Measurements: 22 3/4” H x 26 7/8” W x 1 7/8” D [frame]
Professionally conserved. Early frame, perhaps original; wear and loss to frame elements and loss to gilding. Light craquelure to surface throughout, areas of light inpainting around edges; minor edge losses where frame rubs.
