While many of us can’t claim to have an in-depth understanding of physics, we all know Albert Einstein as an icon, even if it’s only for the instantly-recognizable bushy hair and mustache. There’s something endearing and accessible about a Nobel Prize-winner and one of the great scientific minds of the twentieth century looking like a bit of a character.
Auction Alert: Caramel From The Carmelites
Hulings 1981 Spanish painting “In Watering Place at Ubeda” will be featured at Santa Fe Art Auction November 10th. It’s a classic slice of life from Spain. The winding orange-yellow earth road flows around a corner of buildings, where daily life is unfolding. A man brings his white burro to drink from a stone cistern, where a lean greyhound is also considering a drink.

Auction Alert: Tesuque Mayor’s Back Yard
“Tesuque Mayor’s Backyard” is masterfully composed in a way that keeps your eye in perpetual motion, has particularly engaging use of color, and features a gorgeous display of chiaroscuro in the alternating bands of light and shadow. It’s coming up at Heritage Auctions in Dallas on November 8th.
Water is Life
Hulings painted “Boy Leading Water Burro” in 1981. It’s almost, but not quite a square, which gives a cozy feel to the frame. Set in Mexico, the strong, directional sunlight gives a high-contrast look to the painting and adds a bright spark to these tough little guys. If you look carefully at the top and right, you’ll see a series of amber highlights almost burning through the frame, as if the scene is lit from the inside.
Paint More, Sleep Less

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’ […]
