About

As the Son of Albert Clark and Grandson James Clark, William Albert Clark comes from a background of acclaimed animal artists. Although William was actually registered as ‘Albert William’, he was formerly known by his middle name to avoid confusion with his father. Learning from his predecessors, William Clark specialized in the painting of horses and sometimes painted them with their riders or with their carriage and driver. Similarly, he would often create portraits of prize cattle and dogs. In a similar way to James Clark – William’s Grandad – dedicating “The Runaway Horse” to his son Albert, Albert Clark attributed a recreation of the same painting to William Albert Clark under the new title ‘Breaking Loose’. To obtain commissions for his work, William Albert Clark was often required to travel and he stated on his card “Gentlemen waited upon in any part of the country”. To try and gain more work under the impression that William Clark was a member of the Royal Agricultural Society, aside from his usual signature of W. A. Clark, William would often add the letters RAS. This is a very nice example of the artist's work and has all the additions he included in some of his best work, such as the open door and horse blanket. The painting has been framed in a new handmade English Antique style frame.
