Albert Clark was the son of the Victorian animal painter James Clark (1812-1884), and one of the well-known Clark family of artists. Taught by his father, Albert found his great inspiration and success in equine portraiture becoming one of the busiest painters of horses in London around the turn of the century. In addition to racehorses, Albert Clark was also regularly commissioned to paint portraits of prize-winning thoroughbreds at the Islington Horse Show in London.

Between 1859 and 1892 Joseph Denovan exhibited 25 oils at the Royal Academy in London, as well as many more at the British Institution, the Royal Society of British Artists and the Paris Salon.

The son of the Scottish landscape painter Joseph Adam, Joseph Denovan Adam would go on to eclipse the achievements of his father becoming late Victorian Britain’s most celebrated painter of Highland cattle. Where others painters of the Highlands such as Horatio McCulloch were content to dot their landscapes with a few cattle Adam gave them pride of place.

Adam was a stickler for painting from nature, and had a large studio – part wooden hut, part glass conservatory – built on his house to serve as an all-weather observation base. He called it his “cattle atelier”, and here he established a school of animal painting where he kept many live animals for his students to draw.
