Joseph Clark was born near Dorchester, Dorset. He studied painting in London under J. M. Leigh (1808-1860), who was himself the only pupil of William Etty, RA (1787-1849), the celebrated painter of classical and historical subjects. Clark specialized in depicting domestic genre subjects of a tender nature which generally featured children and he also painted a small number of biblical subjects. In 1857 at the age of twenty three he exhibited his first painting at the Royal Academy and he continued to exhibit there for all but two of the subsequent forty seven years. Many Victorian painters sought to demonstrate their social conscience through emphasizing in their paintings the importance of family life and Joseph Clark was no exception. Whilst avoiding the overly sentimental style of some of his contemporaries, he frequently chose subjects which sought to remind people of their good fortune in having a caring family at a time when many children grew up as orphans in workhouses. Clark enjoyed considerable success with his paintings, maintaining both a London house and a home in the country for much of his life. In 1876 he was awarded a medal in Philadelphia for his paintings 'The Sick Child' and 'The Nest'. The Chantrey Bequest purchased two of his paintings, 'Early Promise' in 1877 and 'A Mother's Darling' in 1885. Exhibited : Royal Academy 1857-1904, British Institution, Royal Society of British Artists, Suffolk Street, Royal Institute of Oil Painters, New Water - Colour Society, Grosvenor Gallery, Birmingham, Dudley, Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester.

Looks like the perfect bleak weather to stay home for in front of a cozy fire.

Appreciate you views on this painting Sharimarie, jandchris, mariolyn, Isaly and @blurple53 (nice to meet you). I'll take a look at what other artwork Joseph Clark may have that is interesting :-)

Looks like the definition of cold. Beautiful too

What an eerie and mysterious looking painting. One can feel the wind blowing and sweeping the snow across the highway. Interesting bio above.

mariolyn

The FENCE doesn't seem to be helping.

What a beak scene this is, and so cold - hope they have efficient heaters in their vehicles. Thank you oynot.

Sharimarie

That painting is almost haunting with its eerily cold snow swept highway. I have traveled in whisp blown snow like that in temperatures below freezing. You learn to take it slowly. Thanks for the artwork puzzle and the information on the artist.
