Getting the Most For Your Painting
“Provenance is king. When you sell something, you want to know what it is, what's the story behind it, when and where it was made, and how to reach the right people - people interested in buying. This is more true of fine art than anything.” - Elizabeth Hulings
Why Own a Hulings?
You join a discerning group entrusted to care for a work by one of America’s most important painters..
Some recognize their heritage in the work. Some admire the painter’s technical brilliance. Regardless of the reason, the work holds its value on the secondary market.
Lovers & Soldiers
Hulings’ 1950-60s illustrations are a unique part of his body of work. Many of them were created for pulp covers and were so successfully attention-grabbing that they’re now almost as enjoyable for the campy, sensationalist factor as they are for the artist’s skill. Not so with this one. Hulings’ original illustration for the cover of Tana de Gámez’s “Like a River of Lions” is simply breathtaking.
“There were majestic mountains stationed behind those clouds and they revealed themselves periodically while I was painting. I chose in the end to cover them with mist because they stole interest from my hillside village.” Late summer bucolic Swiss beauty. Too soon it will be buried in alpine snow. When you think of Clark Hulings’ […]
Last Bit of Relaxation
El Saler is a seaside village South of Valencia. The painting is from the 1960s, but my father would have visited there many times, beginning when he lived there as a child in the 1920s. His father, step-mother and sister would often take weekend day trips to the countryside to escape the heat and bother of Valencia.

“We are honored to have the CHF Dallas Summit featured in the September 2018 issue of Western Art Collector. Like many Hulings collectors, we are fans of this publication: it is one of the best ways to stay current with upcoming sales of both contemporary and historic Western Art.”
An Artist’s Alchemy
“What appears to our eyes as ‘real’ in a painting has, in fact, been cobbled together from abstract elements. This is an artist’s alchemy: the transmutation of something basic into something valuable and meaningful.”
It really is incredible how many iconic stories Clark Hulings touched as a professional illustrator. James Cain’s Mildred Pierce was made into a now-classic film by Warner Brothers starring Joan Crawford.
A Walk with Grand-Père
This lovely drawing was part of Hulings’ 1999 Catalogue; it was one of several French works in this one-man show. As France is still fresh from their world cup victory this summer, we thought you might enjoy a quiet European moment with these two.
Auction Alert: Go With The Flow
“Altermann Auctions really timed this auction well, at least from our perspective. The height of summer is a perfect moment to imagine sinking into a freezing cold river. In this 1970 painting, Hulings has his cake and eats it too: the shadow in the foreground shows off the cold water and snow in icey grays, while the clear evening sunlight in the background warms up a palette of glowing amber trees.”
Auction Alert: Donkeys Nuzzling
We’re very happy to see “Donkeys Nuzzling” featured at auction with Bonhams San Francisco on August 7th, so these donkeys could be yours.
Auction Alert: Santa Fe Kitchen Corner
Last week we focused on a major work coming up at auction which includes some still life within it. Santa Fe Kitchen Corner is all still life, and it’s also on the summer auction schedule, this time in San Francisco.
Auction Alert: Major Hulings European Market Scene
“The most interesting time of day for this pedestrian mall is early morning. The mist has not yet burned off. Flower merchants are setting up their stalls, Barcelonans are walking to work and tourists are still in bed.” —Clark Hulings, Timeless Beauty: Pursuing Life’s Textures
