Product Description:

A master of watercolor technique, Timothy J. Clark (b. 1951) imbues his paintings with an unmistakable sense of place, conveying the very essence of each of his subjects. Timothy J. Clark is the first book to trace the stages of the artist's career, setting his work within the context of contemporary American art. Clark's watercolor and oil paintings of sacred and domestic spaces, his still life's, portraits, and landscapes, can seem to belong to an earlier, classic school of painting, but as art historian Lisa E. Farrington notes in the essay presented here, these are not just "pretty pictures; they are diffidently profound documents of human existence." Farrington speaks of Clark's "almost uncanny ability to infuse rudimentary and inert objects...with something akin to a human soul."

Clark's works have been acquired by many private and public institutions, including the National Portrait Gallery, the Butler Institute of American Art, and the Farnsworth Art Museum. Since 1994 he has taught at the Art Students League of New York, and he often lectures at such institutions as the Worcester Museum of Art, the National Academy School of Fine Arts, and the Yale University School of Architecture's graduate summer workshop in Rome.

With more than 120 color reproductions, a foreword by Will Barnet, essays by Jean Stern and Lisa E. Farrington, and an afterword by Ira Goldberg, executive director of the Art Students League of New York, Timothy J. Clark presents a comprehensive overview of this important artist's compelling oeuvre.
