Eliot Candee Clark, Extensive Landscape with Cows - Early-C20th watercolour

An original early 20th-century watercolour painting, Eliot Candee Clark Extensive Landscape with Cows Grazing.

An attractive loose watercolour landscape signed E.C. Clark. The unusual flourishes on the 'C. C' of the signature match those of Eliot Candee Clark (1883-1980).

Eliot Candee Clark was an American Impressionist artist, who travelled extensively in Europe 1904-5. Son of tonalist painter Walter Clark, he grew up in New York City, where he exhibited at a young age at the New York Water Color Club. He briefly trained at the Art Students League under John Twachtman, but preferred to develop his own style through painting excursions and encounters with nature. He painted landscapes in a realist style, with broad areas of saturated colour and minimal details. He divided his painting area into obvious fore-, middle-, and background areas, using banks of foliage to achieve a planar effect. Increasingly, his style became impressionistic in late life. In New York, Clark taught, wrote, and was active in art circles. He was elected president of the National Academy of Design in 1956.

There is an additional watercolour painting of foliage on the verso, as shown.
