About

Beautiful 1920's soft pink floral still-life with bold blue background by William Clapp (American,1879-1954). Signed lower right, "W. Clapp". Oil on old Canada packing crate board and presented in a rustic wood frame. Image size, 20"H x 24"L. This an early work by the artist which is distinctive in his bold Impressionist style before he merged into his signature pointillist style. Born in Montreal, Canada of American parents on Oct. 29, 1879. At age six Clapp moved to California with his family, settling in Oakland where he spent his childhood. In 1900 he returned to Montreal for four years of study with Wm Brymner followed by further study in Paris at Académies Julian, Colarossi, and Grande Chaumière. He then returned to Montreal where he was elected an associate member of the Royal Canadian Art Academy. He lived and worked in Cuba before returning to Oakland in 1917. He then served as director and curator of the Oakland Art Gallery from 1918-49. In this position, and as a member of a group of painters called the Society of Six, he arranged exhibitions of their works from 1923-28. For six years he operated the Clapp School of Art in Oakland. His early works reflect the impressionist style of Renoir; whereas, his later works are of the Pointillist style of Seurat. Clapp is as well known in Canada as he is in the U.S. He died in Oakland on April 21, 1954.
