Roan Coated Horse in Fine Gilt Gesso Frame

A portrait of a roan coated horse in a landscape, a homestead in the distance before a valley. Painted in oil on canvas and within a fine gilt gesso frame. Unsigned but firmly attributed to James Clark Sen. (op.1821-1900)English circa 1860. w:36.5 in x h:31.25 in (29.5 in x 24 in)
This artist was one of the Clark family, presumably the first of the horse painters of which there were several, his full name being Albert James Clark. When signing in full he will sometimes add his address beneath the signature being 67 Riverside Road, Highbury London. He is considered one of the most artistic of the Clark family, strongly influenced by J.F. Herring sen. There were at least five Clarks painting horses and sometimes other animals from the middle of the 19th century until the beginning of the 20th. They were all called variously James and or Albert and signed using some or all of the family names! They painted in the same styles being influenced firstly by J.F.Herring and then by each other. Their signatures are similar. This a good example of James Clark Senior's work, finely executed in his nieve style.

Walpoles is an antiques business that has been established for more than 35 years with an extensive stock which can be divided into three broad themes: "The Army" encompassing colonial furniture and works of art, folk art of the British soldier as well as campaign furniture, pictures and objects of a military theme; "The Navy" covering fine and folk art associated with the British Royal and Merchant Navy fleets as well as fine art and objects that fall under a title of "The China Trade"; and finally there is an established core of furniture, pictures and works of art typical of "The English Country House".

Founded by Graham Walpole, the business first set up in Church Street, in London’s Marylebone, and by the end of the 1980s had moved to Westbourne Grove, from where they dealt until the turn of the last century. In 2004 Walpoles relocated to their home town of Greenwich and joined the British Antiques Dealers Association but now work from 111 Portobello Road.
