Listing Information
Albert Clark was born on 29 October 1843 at Christchurch, Middlesex into the Clark family of artists. He was the son of the animal painter James Clark (1812 – 1909) and father of the artists Frederick Albert Clark (1869-1954) and William Albert Clark (1880-1963). His half-brother James Albert Clark (1863-1955) was also an animal painter.

He was probably taught by his father and made his debut at an early age, being recorded as an artist at the age of just 17. His subject matter initially followed that of his father and he painted horses, cattle and dogs. However, Albert soon began to specialise in horse portraits and received many commissions to paint race horses and show winners.

He lived in Islington and Tottenham and died at Middlesex Hospital on 18 December 1928. Examples of his works can be found at the Totnes Elizabethan House Museum and Doncaster Museum.

The work is housed in its original gilt frame, which is in excellent condition.
