Mission of the Clark Hulings Estate
The Estate exists to secure Clark Hulings' place in the canon of American master painters, and to support collectors, auction houses, galleries, dealers, and museums by providing a central resource for information, licensing, reproductions, and sales support.
Clark's Lasting Significance
Clark is revered for his technique and venerated for capturing the essence of ancestral homelands. His subjects and composition are widely emulated, and he is recognized for his enormous impact on American realists, and especially Western artists, since the 1970’s.
Who Was Clark Hulings
As a leading American realist painter, Clark traveled the world looking for subject matter that reflected the vibrancy of the human spirit. Admired for his genius in manipulating the formal elements, his true talent was in seeing beauty where others might only find misery.
Among street people, he portrayed compassion and self-respect. In urban alleys, he envisioned sunlit corridors of family activity. With rustic farmers he depicted lives synchronized to the seasons and the animals in their care.
Clark's work charts the course of history: modernization against a timeless background.
