C1868 Equine Oil Painting by James Clarke (1812-1884)


This oil painting is by by James Clarke Snr (1812-1884), a renowned animalier. It has recently been cleaned and restored, and we have the description of its processing from the conservators. James senior raised a three generation dynasty of animal painters. Signed lower right. An inscription on the reverse " June Rose, 1st hackney London, James Clarke, animal painter, 21 Walbrook St, New North Road, N." They lived at that address between 1858 and 1878, so this painting is in that period. The excellent gilt frame is 80 cm by 71 cm.
