Henry Clive



An exceedingly rare surviving Henry Clive cover illustration from his 20+ years creating for The American Weekly. This painting was from a series done in 1934 titled Darlings of the Poets. In this series, Clive illustrated the inspirations for leading poets and writers. This particular oil on canvas depicts "Lenore" as the lost and sorrowful inspiration behind The Raven as written by Edgar Allan Poe. This was un-earthed in California recently in the estate of Patricia Lake, the rumored illegitimate daughter of Hearst and his long time mistress and confident, Marion Davies. This was thought to have been lost in a fire and was stored for years or on display in Hearst's San Simeon Castle.
