Frederick Albert Clark was born on 29 March 1869 in Islington, part of the Clark family of artists. His father was Albert Clark (1843-1928) and his grandfather was James Clark (1812-1909). His brother William Albert Clark (1880-1963) was also an artist.
He was probably taught by his father and by the age of 21 had set himself up as an artist. He lived in Hornsey, Islington and Haringey and specialised in painting animal portraits notably of horses like his father. Clark was christened Albert but added the name of Frederick when signing his paintings in all likelihood to avoid confusion with his father.
He died at Hillingdon Hospital on 29 July 1954.
The work is housed in its original gilt frame, which is in excellent condition.
